Every Armistice week for the past five years Duns Players have staged a production in November and donated from the proceeds to a war or forces related charity. In November of 2015 we staged The Diary of Anne Frank, the multi award winning play by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett.
One of the most famous and haunting stories of the 20th century the plight of two families hiding for almost two years as seen through the eyes of a young girl feels as fresh and as relevant now as on the day it was written.
At a time when the plight of the refugees of war and the impact of war on families and children fill our screens it seemed fitting that this year we will donate £500 from the proceeds of the show to War Child.
