CRT presents Anon(ymous)

Thursday, October 29, 2015
7:30pm – 8:30pm

Storrs Campus
CRT Studio Theatre

While immigration is one of the most polarizing political issues of the day, Playwright Iizuka’s epic story of a young immigrant is as enduring as America itself. Separated from his mother, a young refugee called Anon journeys through the United States, encountering a wide variety of people — some kind, some dangerous and cruel — as he searches for his family. From a sinister one-eyed butcher to beguiling barflies to a sweatshop, Anon must navigate through a chaotic, ever-changing landscape in this entrancing adaptation of Homer’s Odyssey. Whether colonial religious refugees, the Irish of 150 years ago or the migrant workers of today, we are all Anon — or his recent descendants.
