THE SECRET ANNEX
What if Anne Frank survived the war?
A daringly imaginative tale about one of history's most beloved icons
A play that brings Anne Frank to life in a new way
A woman in pursuit of her dreams
Anne... all grown up
By ALIX SOBLER
Directed By MARCIA KASH
"It’s a moving tribute to the millions, like the real Anne Frank, whose lives and futures were stolen. Yet it’s also a reminder that there are millions of stories we’ll never hear, but that are quietly heroic in their own way."
Anne Frank has survived the war. She is 25 years old, living in New York and as precocious as ever. Clinging to the idealized life of a writer, she is determined to get her diary published. But when love and family beckon, Anne must consider whether the greatest art of all is the art of living well. The Secret Annex is a stirring and romantic “what if” story about survival, sacrifice and all that we have to be grateful for.
Starring Sara Farb, as seen in the Stratford Festival’s 2015 Diary of Anne Frank!
