Narrator Point of View

First Person (Central Narrator)

Because the play is taken from Anne's diary, her words intermingle with the action and dialogue of the people on stage. The diary entries are done in cool, voiceover fashion so we feel like we're actually watching Anne's diary come to life. She's the central narrator for us but, as her voice fades, we are more into watching the characters deliver their lines. Anne doesn't narrate the entire play, but rather comes in when we need her to explain or provide more information.
