The Adelaide Repertory Theatre Company presents 'The Diary of Anne Frank' playing at the Arts Theatre from April 6th - 22nd. Written by Frances Goodrich, Albert Hackett and directed by Geoff Brittain, it's based on the 1959 movie of the same name. It's set in Amsterdam during World War 2 and is the story of a Jewish girl called Anne and her family who lived in hiding in an attic of shopkeeper Kraler.

On 6th July 1942, the Frank family goes into hiding. The Van Pels family follows a week later and in November 1942 they are joined by an eighth person, the dentist Fritz Pfeffer. Out of the eight, only one survives. Anne Frank keeps a daily diary of her time during the war and her budding romance with Peter Van Daan. Her romance causes jealousy between Anne and her older sister Margot.

Otto Frank (Anne's father) was the only one to survive and years later returns to the attic to find his late daughter's diary. Anne wrote in her diary that she wants to become a journalist and publish her diary as a novel; on June 25th 1947, 'The Diary of Anne Frank' was published.

Starring Henny Walters, Tim Williams, Nicole Rutty, Genevieve Venning, Tim Taylor, Therese Hornby, Ronan Banks, Chris Leech, Stuart Pearce and Esther Michelsen.
