Playing Anne Frank
Using archival material and interviews with surviving cast and crew members, Forward executive editor Adam Langer presents a story that’s never been told: the backstory of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play and Oscar-winning film, The Diary of Anne Frank, and how this iconic work shapes those involved in performing it — including high school students putting the show on today.
