The Diary of Anne Frank is a stage adaptation of the 1947 book The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank. Anne Frank emerges from history a living, lyrical, intensely gifted young girl, who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with astonishing honesty, wit, and determination. An impassioned drama about the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic, THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence—their fear, their hope, their laughter, their grief.

Anne’s polite and practical father, Mr. Frank is the quiet yet firm leader of the “Annex Family"; his relationship with Anne is close; they draw their strength from each other.
Anne’s reserved and nervous mother; Mrs. Frank and Anne clash though there is genuine love there; Margot and Edith’s relationship mirrors Anne and Otto’s.
Anne’s older sister/Margot is much more like her mother than Anne; she is quiet, modest, and reserved; the complete opposite of Anne.
The youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank; Anne is a lively, curious girl of thirteen at the beginning of the play; she retains her bright spark throughout; she moves from childishly naive, to outgoing and boisterous, to creative and introspective; she misses nothing that happens in the annex.
Mr. Van Daan:
An irritable former business partner of Mr. Frank; his family is invited to stay in the attic with the Franks; he is openly critical of the Annex dwellers, and yet, deeply in love with his wife and protective of his family.
Mrs. Van Daan:
Mr. Van Daan’s vain and finicky wife; Mrs. Van Daan prizes the material things in life, including a fur coat she brought to the attic with her; the woman who hides behind the vanity is seldom glimpsed, except in a few precious moments.
Peter Van Daan:
The son of Mr. and Mrs Van Daan, Peter is a shy, quiet, teenaged boy; he soon becomes a friend and confidant for Anne.
Difficult to get along with, Mr. Dussell joins the Franks and the Van Daans after they have been in hiding about two months; he is the source of many laughs.
A very well-liked, genuine, and generous secretary in Mr. Frank’s office; Miep helps to protect the families in hiding; along with Mr. Kraler, she brings to the refugees food, supplies, and news from the outside world.
A businessman who works with Miep to help protect the people in hiding. Mr. Kraler risks his life to help his friends.
