The Diary of Anne Frank is a play adapted from the diary of a teenage Jewish girl living in hiding during the Holocaust. Beginning in 1942, the Frank family and the Van Daan family go into hiding in an upstairs room above an office, where people will help them hide from the Nazis. During Anne's time in hiding, she writes a diary detailing their life in the upstairs rooms, from celebrating Hanukkah, to having a thief break in downstairs, to dangers of being blackmailed and discovered. Throughout it all, Anne writes about her ordinary teenage feelings in very unordinary circumstances.
