UT’s Department of Theatre and Dance is taking on the story known across the world, “The Diary of Anne Frank.” It’s the haunting yet inspiring account of a young Jewish girl and her family’s lives during World War II. Seeking refuge from Nazi persecution, Anne, along with seven others, hid in a “secret annex” in Amsterdam for two years.
Told through recordings in Anne’s cherished diary, the play stands as a timeless reflection of her fear, hope and faith during one of the darkest periods in history.
