WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

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. Inspired by the story of Meyer Levin, Compulsion brings playwright Rinne Groff and Artistic Director Oskar Eustis (The Ruby Sunrise) together again with 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. The cast features Hannah Cabell (Miss Mermin / Mrs. Silver), Matte Osian (Mr. Thomas / Mr. Harris / Mr. Ferris / Mr. Matzliach) and Mandy Patinkin (Sid Silver).
