Description: In a new solo, stage and screen actor, director and writer Roger Guenveur Smith navigates an intimate odyssey inspired by Otto Frank, the father of diarist Anne Frank. Smith's performance of this tragic and triumphant history is distinguished by archival immersion, physical narrative, and improvisation, signatures of his astonishing work for the stage and screen.

How does one negotiate loss? And in what currency?
Does our devotion to the dead preclude our commitment to the living?

Smith interrogates our present American moment through a rigorous view of our not-so-distant past. Scored by Smith's longtime collaborator, Marc Anthony Thompson.
