Director: Kerry King
This is an amateur production of the famous diaries by Anne Frank in Nazi Germany.
It takes place in Amsterdam in 1942 during the Nazi’s occupation of that country. Two Jewish families, the Franks and the Van Daans, are forced to take refuge in a small, two-room hiding place behind a faux bookshelf in a business owned by Otto Frank. Mrs. Frank, Mr. Van Dann, his wife, their son Peter, Anne and her sister Margot not only endure the terrible discomforts of living in such limited confines but must also keep quiet during the day for fear of being detected.
Good or bad news from the outside, food rations, and a few amenities are brought in by two friends of Otto’s, Mr. Kraler , and Miep. The Franks and Van Daans are later joined by a Jewish dentist, Mr. Dussell. The ordeal is not without its lighter moments, but there are also many moments of crushing despair, heated bickering, tears and rage as their fears mount and time trudges on.
