Durham School Of The Arts Theatre Brings Timely Production Of ANNE FRANK To The Stage
DSA Theatre Troupe 5765 brings one of the most powerful stories of the 20th century to their intimate Black Box Theatre. Wendy Kesselman's adaptation of Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett's The Diary of Anne Frank gives introspection into Anne Frank's daily life in the annex, her coming-of-age story, and blossoming relationship with housemate Peter van Daan in her two-years of hiding. This is a dynamic exploration of the "banality of evil" and the ever present flame of hope in the story of a Jewish girl in Amsterdam during World War II, and her family's desperate attempt to preserve humanity in an inhumane world. Seven decades later, Anne Frank's message still resonates with young people around the world.
DSA's award winning theatre department performs on a set replicating the Anne Frank House, in their intimate Black Box Theatre - audience members are in for an immersion into and deeper understanding of who Anne Frank was and her experience during the Holocaust.
The Diary of Anne Frank plays at the Durham School of the Art's Black Box Theater (400 N. Duke Street, Durham NC 27701) on May 9th-12th at 7:30PM. Tickets are sold for $10 at the door or online at www.seatyourself.biz/DSA.
