And Then They Came for Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank
And Then They Came for Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank
AATE Distinguished Play Award (2000, Upper/Secondary)

"The stark reality struck me as no production of The Diary of Anne Frank ever has. It was stunning and brought tears to my eyes and those of others around me." —Judith Klein, The Jewish Journal, Boston

"It'll stay with you for the rest of your life." —The Indianapolis Star

"Take heed…lest you forget the things which your eyes have seen, and…teach them to your children and to your children's children." —Deuteronomy 4:9
Drama. By James Still.

Cast: 5m., 4w. (minimum 1m., 2w. with doubling.) One of the most widely produced new plays, And Then They Came for Me is a unique theatrical experience: a multimedia play that combines videotaped interviews with Holocaust survivors Ed Silverberg and Eva Schloss with live actors recreating scenes from their lives during World War II. Ed was Anne Frank's first boyfriend, and she wrote about him in the beginning of her now-famous diary. Eva Schloss was the same age as Anne Frank and lived in the same apartment building in Amsterdam. Her family went into hiding the same day as the Frank family. And like the Frank family, they were betrayed. On Eva's 15th birthday, her family was arrested by the Nazis and sent to concentration camps. Eva and her mother survived, and after the war her mother married Otto Frank (Anne's father). Part oral history, part dramatic action, part direct address, part remembrance, the ensemble-driven And Then They Came for Me breaks new ground and has been acclaimed by audiences and critics in world-wide productions."This production is like a historic newsreel brought to life on the stage. And it works." (Charles Epstein, WICR Radio, Indianapolis) And Then They Came for Me incorporates the use of live actors, videotape and a CD for each performance. Area staging. Approximate running time: 70 minutes. Also available: The book, Eva's Story, by Eva Schloss and a German manuscript translation.
