Israelis and Muslims and Republicans, oh my! Anne Frank IN THE GAZA STRIP, written by Monica Bauer, is headed to the 2017 Planet Connection Theatre Festivity, which runs June 12 – July 9, 2017 at The Clemente, 107 Suffolk Street, NYC.
Playwright Monica Bauer‘s parable echoing the Wizard of Oz puts us in a world where Trump-supporters are the ruling majority and calling every tune. What will they think when Dorothy, the school drama teacher, casts a production of the Diary of Anne Frank with the title character played by a Muslim?? There’s no place like home! This open-hearted political satire is directed by Shaun Peknic (Assoc. Director, ONCE, on Broadway); and features Andrew Dahreddine, David M. Farrington, Aizzah Fatima, Bruce Jones, John Fico, Becca Lish, and Lauren D. Salvo.
Planet Connections Theatre Festivity are multiple theater, film and music festivals. Planet Connections’ artists use their work to shed light on causes that matter and inspire audiences to get involved. All of PCTF’s artists raise awareness for an organization or topic of their own selection.
