“After the war, people said it would never happen again, and people didn’t want to talk about it—now we live in a different life. What’s happening in Syria and in many other places… we’re still doing the same thing and the world just looks on.” – Eva Schloss
Part oral history, part dramatic action, part remembrance, this play brings to life what happened after The Diary of Anne Frank ends. The ensemble-driven play breaks new ground and has been acclaimed by audiences and critics. A unique experience… a multimedia play that combines videotaped interviews with Holocaust survivors Eva Schloss and Ed Silverberg with live actors recreating scenes from their lives as teenagers during WWII. Ed was Anne’s first boyfriend. Eva was the same age and lived across the road from Anne in Amsterdam until she and her family were arrested by the Nazis and sent to concentration camps. More than 1.25 million people were killed in Auschwitz-Birkenau where Eva and her family were sent.
Eva Schloss is hoping to be present at the venue to answer questions following the performances.
“The young company are excellent. The multi role playing is hugely successful and the characters are all strong and committed… This is a challenging and thought provoking piece, it is vitally important that it is seen and discussed.” – Petra Schofield on theatrebath.co.uk
“It was stunning and has left an incredible impression on me. I’ve been to Auschwitz twice and to Anne Frank’s house twice too and yet your production added a new layer of emotion and connection to those unimaginable events.” – Peter Kyle, MP for Hove and Portslade
