About Compulsion or The House Behind

Written by Rinne B. Groff Directed by Johanna Gruenhut

Starring Kimberly Gilbert, Marcus Kyd, and Paul Morella

WHO OWNS ANNE FRANK’S STORY?

Sid Silver is a man obsessed. When he learns about a young girl named Anne Frank and her diary, Silver makes it his mission to ensure her tale is heard. But is the manuscript a work of art? A cultural treasure? Or simply a valuable product? As he fights for the diary’s publication and the rights to adapt it into a play, Silver’s idealism turns to fanaticism, and his good intentions may prove to be his undoing. A fascinating, semi-fictional story about one forgotten writer’s battle for one extraordinary girl’s diary.
