Name: The Diary of Anne Frank
Date: January 27, 2018 - January 28, 2018
Event Description:
In this staged reading of Wendy Kesselman's new adaptation of a transcendently powerful, ensemble-driven drama, Anne Frank emerges from history a living, lyrical, gifted young girl who confronts her changing life and the increasing horror of her time with honesty, hope, laughter and determination. “When I write I shake off all my cares. But I want to achieve more than that. I want to be useful and bring enjoyment to all people, even those I’ve never met. I want to go on living even after my death!” This is a new adaptation for a new generation.

Each performance will be followed by a post-reading conversation with Jeannette Ringold, who was separated from her family and hidden by the resistance as a child in Holland during World War II. As an adult, she has shared her experience through educational work in California schools, making the Holocaust real through her personal story.

Company of Fools’ staged reading of The Diary of Anne Frank is produced in partnership with the Wood River Jewish Community and St. Thomas Episcopal Church. The readings have been generously supported by Carol P. Nie, the Wood River Jewish Community Board of Directors and St. Thomas Episcopal Church.

On Thursday and Friday, January 25 & 26, matinees of The Diary of Anne Frank will be performed for students from around the Wood River Valley as a part of The Center's and Company of Fools' commitment to presenting transformative arts and educational experiences in our community.
