A play by DENNIS FOON
Produced by THEATRE OF YOUTH

Grades: 3-6

This is the story of an immigrant family from a fictitious place called "Homeland." When the family arrives in America, they discover a new culture and unexpected prejudice against Homelanders. This clever play has the Homelanders speaking English while the Americans speak a made-up gibberish language, allowing the audience to understand what it is like to be overwhelmed by a new language and new customs.

Dramatization by FRANCES GOODRICH and ALBERT HACKETT
Newly Adapted by WENDY KESSELMAN
Produced by LANCASTER OPERA HOUSE

Grades: 8-12

In this new adaptation, 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, this powerful new version of the play captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence - their fear, their hope, their laughter, their grief. Each day of these two dark years, Anne's voice shines through: "When I write I shake off all my cares. But I want to achieve more than that. I want to be useful and bring enjoyment to all people, even those I've never met. I want to go on living even after my death!"
