"I don't want to have lived in vain like most people. I want to be useful or bring enjoyment to people, even those I've never met. I want to go on living even after my death!"

First performed in 1956, this play was winner of the Pulitzer Prize for drama and Tony award for best play.

The play is a stage adaptation of the published version of 13 year-old Anne's diary, The Diary of a Young Girl. It opens with Otto Frank returning to the annexe to find Anne's diary, before going back in time to the family first entering the annexe and beginning their 2 years in hiding. The entire play is set within the secret annexe where the Franks, along with the Van Daans and Mr Dussel, hid from the Nazis for 2 years, relying on help from two non-Jewish friends.

In what would have been Anne's 80th year, the Woodhouse Players present a very tender account of a typical adolescent in extraordinary circumstances.
