Studio 58 presents Anon(ymous), timely and imaginative retelling of Homer’s epic poem The Odyssey, written by Naomi Iizuka and directed by Studio 58 graduate, Carmen Aguirre.
Iizuka’s Odysseus is a young refugee named Anon, who travels the United States in search of his disappeared mother. Far away from home and constantly skirting danger, he encounters a wide variety of people and creatures including a murderous butcher, a fantastical stiletto-wearing bird, and a salacious truck driver. It’s those who offer kindness and hope—an immigrant family, a chorus of refugees, and a surfing goddess, that allow him to stay strong in his resolve to reunite with his family.
November 14–December 1
