Diary of Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank, an enduring drama that won the Pulitzer Prize and Tony award as Best Play in 1956, describes how a young girl and her family were hidden in an attic in Amsterdam during the German occupation of that city in World War II. The teenaged Anne kept a diary for two years, and it formed the basis of the book from which the play was adapted. Tawny Stevens, the play’s director, describes the drama this way: “Anne saw the most unspeakable acts in history. She saw it all, she wrote it down, and in the end, she chose hope.” A.D. Players has partnered with Holocaust Museum Houston, which will present “Anne Frank” tours at 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays during the run of the show.

Previews are Wednesday and Thursday, January 29 and 30, and the play opens Friday, January 31, and runs through March 9, at 7:30 on Thursdays, at 8 on Fridays and Saturdays, and at 2:30 on Sundays, plus Wednesdays at 7:30 on February 5 and 12, and a Saturday matinee on February 22. Admission is $22 to $43, with previews at $15, from A.D. Players, at Grace Theater, 2710 West Alabama. For information, call 713-526-2721 or visit adplayers.org.
