The Diary of Anne Frank tells the true story of Anne Frank, a young Jewish girl who hid in an attic with her family during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands from 1942-1944.

The well-known play is described as such by Pittsburgh Public: "Unfolding throughout the play are the daily lives of this group in their closed quarters. There are moments of great tension, and also periods of almost normalcy. Anne has her school work and the pictures of movie stars she’s cut out of magazines. She argues with her mother, but also creates a joyous Hanukkah for her extended family. Although food is in short supply, as time goes by she outgrows her clothes and notices changes in her body. She confides her thoughts to her best friend, her diary, and its survival has allowed the world to know the spirit and courage of this remarkable girl."

Zaken will be joined by Randy Kovitz, Chris Laitta, Erika Cuenca, David Wohl, Helena Ruoti, David Jackson, Daniel Krell, Ken Bolden and Kelsey Carthew.
