Playwright Wendy Kesselman’s powerful adaptation and an ensemble of diverse actors tell an urgent and contemporary story, linking the poignancy of Anne’s diary to genocide then and now. Kesselman will lead a talkback at the 8 p.m. performance on Friday November 2.

Performed without intermission, each performance will feature a story by a survivor of genocide from such times and places as the Holocaust, Rwanda and Darfur. We learn how the story of this diary, and the Holocaust of European Jews, have not ended humankind’s bent toward hatred and genocide.

Performances will premiere new text by the playwright and will feature an inspired set design by scenographer Mirta Tocci.
