The Diary of Anne Frank

Tue 22nd – Sat 26th May 2012


“Brilliant, inspired; an extraordinary theatrical adventure. ”





A Touring Consortium Theatre Company and York Theatre Royal co-production


When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer?

Hidden from the Nazis with her Jewish family in a secret annex in Amsterdam, Anne Frank documented her hopes, frustrations and day-to-day experiences of confinement. Her famous diary is an extraordinary personal account of hope and courage, which charts two years of her life from 1942 to 1944, and has united and touched people worldwide.

Starring Christopher Timothy (All Creatures Great and Small, Doctors) as Anne's father, Otto, this Pulitzer Prize-winning play dramatises Anne's wry, witty and poignant observations of herself and her companions in their shared attic home. A dramatic and heart-breaking story evoking all the sentiments of the original diary live on stage, this adaptation includes material that had originally been withheld by Otto Frank and marks the 60th anniversary of the diary's publication in English.

Admission: £24.50(£21.50)
