Staged in a theater built specially for the play, Anne uses Frank's own words as well as passages excluded from the original published work that deal with Anne's emerging sexuality and her relationship with her mother. The stage itself includes a replica of the Frank's Amsterdam apartment where they hid from the occupying Nazi forces for 18 months until they were betrayed in 1944. Unlike the original 1955 play, Anne ends with her death in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.
