It is 1951, and Sid Silver is on a mission to be the guardian of one of the most moving and provocative accounts of the 20th century. Deeply moved by Anne Frank’s diary, he is driven to bring her story to the American masses by promoting the book’s publication and adapting the diary into a work of theater… a complex and inventive telling that is part historical fiction, part investigation into what makes a man obsess, and part exploration of an untold dimension of Anne Frank’s powerful and enduring legacy.
This world premiere production of Compulsion was originally presented by the Berkeley Repertory Theatre in September of 2010.
