4. Anon(ymous) - October 13-15 & 20-22

Theatre ripped from the headlines. Naomi Iizuka's stunning adaptation of Homer's Odyssey as experienced through the lives of anonymous refugees in a mythic USA today. 

This is a poetic, fiercely contemporary drama about identity, loss and search for home and the struggle to survive in contemporary America. The playwright Naomi Iizuka has adapted the classical Greek myth of the Odyssey to the circumstance of two refugees escaping civil war, washing ashore as undocumented refugees in the landscapes and cities of the USA. The play touches on current issues such as immigration, race, exploitation and power and yet the story remains true to very human experiences such as love, loss, first kisses, staying alive and dancing till you drop!
