Chloë Whitehorn

Hello Members,

It is with much enthusiasm that I present to you the newest instalment of PGC's Follow the Playwright initiative, featuring our member Chloë Whitehorn. In the one act play, The Frank Diary of Anne, themes of love, loss, tragedy and memory are explored. Whitehorn's play is powerful in its ability to blur the lines between notions of public and private- our heroine's heartbreaking, deeply personal thoughts are stored on her YouTube channel, where she believes they are safe, hidden in plain view from her technologically illiterate mother. Often humourous, and always poignant and insightful, The Frank Diary of Anne is a moving story, and electric from start to finish.

The Frank Diary of Anne

  • Characters: Female (1)
  • Synopsis: One girl's thoughts on past loves, family tragedy, and YouTube.  Anne couldn't control who she fell in love with, but should her mother be allowed to choose for her?  As a child Anne played make-believe and hide-and-seek in her attic.  Now, on the eve of her wedding, in her favourite hiding space, she discovers something that has been hidden for years that changes everything. Through her memories and video diaries, Anne pieces together the answer to the question "was it all real?", because sometimes playing pretend is the only way to live the reality you want.
  • Acts: 1
  • Running Time: 50 minutes
