“In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.”

This sobering true story of eight people living in hiding in Nazi occupied Holland during World War II, as seen through the eyes of 13-year-old Anne Frank, comes to SCT as a co-production with Indiana Repertory Theatre. Anne’s words reach out to us over the generations, inspiring us to never forget, to never give up on the power and goodness of the human spirit, and to always “fill life with living.”
