World premiere
By Nathan Englander
Directed by Barry Edelstein

Pulitzer Prize finalist Nathan Englander and director Barry Edelstein wowed Globe audiences with The Twenty-Seventh Man, and now they team up again for this world premiere of a modern-day comedy of friendship. What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank is Englander’s adaptation of his award-winning short story about two women, inseparable in high school, whose adult lives have taken them to opposite ends of the earth, and to wildly different experiences of culture, religion, and family. When they reunite, their bond is tested by the distance that has grown between them… and also by their husbands, who don’t exactly see eye to eye. Englander’s distinctive voice—hilarious, outrageous, and emotional—gives us a uniquely funny and smart exploration of how we see ourselves and how our friends see us. Contains strong language.

What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank is supported by production sponsors Elaine and Dave Darwin, Edelman, Sheila and Jeffrey Lipinsky, Jean and Gary Shekhter, Karen and Stuart Tanz, and the Erna Finci Viterbi Artistic Director Fund, as well as artist sponsors Sandra and Arthur Levinson (for playwright Nathan Englander). What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank is the 2020 winner of The Blanche and Irving Laurie Theatre Visions Fund and is the recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award.
