About this show

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. Inspired by the true story of Meyer Levin and his obsession with Anne Frank's diary, Compulsion uses complex and inventive storytelling, including puppetry, to explore the lengths that one man (Mick Weber*) will go to honor Anne Frank's powerful and enduring legacy. The San Francisco Chronicle declares Compulsion "a compelling foray along a thin line between idealism and fanaticism."
