Royal Manitoba Theatre to Present THE SECRET ANNEX
Can we rewrite the past? In her compelling and provocative new play, Manitoba playwright Alix Sobler contemplates the life Anne Frank may have lived had she survived the Holocaust, and explores what would happen to her now-famous diary.
After surviving the war and emigrating to America, 25-year-old Anne is ready to start a new chapter in New York City. Eager to publish a memoir of her time in hiding, Anne is sure it will launch her career as a writer. But when the only interested publisher demands drastic rewrites, Anne questions the meaning of her new life. Why did she survive, if not to share stories?
The creative team includes Director Heidi Malazdrewich, Set & Costume Designer Charlotte Dean, Lighting Designer Larry Isacoff, Sound Designer Michael Wright, Accent Designer & Coach Shannon Vickers, Stage Manager Melissa Novecosky and Apprentice Stage Manager Airyn Lancaster.
