My class read Anne Frank’s edited diaries in sixth grade, an awkward time for boys to discover the first-hand confessions of a boy-crazy adolescent girl (albeit one who unknowingly became the voice of a genocide). Later, in high school, the appearance of a Dutch exchange student prompted our drama teacher to stage The Diary of Anne Frank, with the exchange student as Anne and various English teachers playing all the adults. This basically left no parts for the actual drama students, which led to some hurt feelings, on top of which the Dutch girl was shy and uninterested in acting. The production was canceled when the English teachers all started squabbling. Which is all to say that I’ve never actually seen The Diary of Anne Frank, though it’s probably time; Isabelle Assaf plays Anne in director Rachel Hanauer’s play, running in West Warwick through Saturday.
