COMPULSION

OR THE HOUSE BEHIND

By Rinne Groff
Directed by Johanna Gruenhut
June 5 — 28, 2020 

Who owns Anne Frank’s story?

Sid Silver is a man obsessed. When he learns about a young girl named Anne Frank and her diary, Silver makes it his mission to ensure her tale is heard. But is the manuscript a work of art? A cultural treasure? Or simply a valuable product? As he fights for the diary’s publication and the rights to adapt it into a play, Silver’s idealism turns to fanaticism, and his good intentions may prove to be his undoing. A fascinating, semi-fictional story about one forgotten writer’s battle for one extraordinary girl’s diary. Starring Paul Morella.
