Overview

Experience “Anne Frank, her Diary on Stage”, a theater play based on the life of Anne Frank. It covers the 2 years spent by Anne and her family hidden in the secret annex, as well as events occurring before and after that time. Anne's words poignantly reflect the tensions and tragedy of existence during her family’s time in hiding and make the period come alive. The life-sized set, 180 degrees around the audience, combined with archive footage and beautiful music makes it possible for you to experience Anne's journey that takes the lonely little girl to writing and into womanhood in the midst of terrible oppression. Free use of our Translation System, in audio and/or subtitles on an iPad fixed in front of your seat in 7 languages, 100% synchronized with the actors on stage. “Anne Frank, her Diary on Stage” is the first-ever theater performance based on all the versions of her diaries, including the uncensored ones edited by Anne Frank herself. This theater performance was created at the initiative of the Anne Frank Foundation in Basel. Income from the Frank estate is redirected to fund educational and charitable purposes worldwide.

A wonderful play about Anne Frank. It is based on the different versions of her diary and continues the story after her hiding place was discovered. The play received a well-deserved standing ovation from the audience. It is performed in Dutch, but non-Dutch speakers are...More
