The subject matter of this show is not isolated to the time period in which it takes place. There are so many across the globe that are subjected to circumstances beyond their control that disrupt what would be happy lives. This show and all the performances in it help to cultivate empathy for those who desire normal lives. This show is the most powerful piece of theatre in the Fringe festival. ... full review

This play captures the last innocent days of Anne Frank before she and her family go into hiding. These days encompass her 13th birthday, including a birthday present of her iconic diary, and a young love. The production opens with an intriguing movement piece.

We delight in her curiosity, we feel for her, and we know what awaits her- the play makes you love this girl who you know history will take away. This is one of those rare moments where, like in Romeo and Juliet, knowing the end at the beginning does not take away from the story at all. In fact, all underst... full review
