Anon(ymous) is, in simplest terms, Homer’s epic The Odyssey through the lens of modern day refugee crises. But it’s also about fighting monsters, motherhood, manifestations of faith, chosen families, and what happens to identity under drastic and unforeseen circumstances. Tracking the whirlwind journey of our young protagonist Anon, we are offered dozens of visions of America: from the crashing ocean to the hazy back room of a bar, from a family-owned Indian restaurant to a sweatshop. We will travel by railroad, by interstate, by sea, and by foot searching for Home.

*This show is recommended for audiences in 7th grade and above. Please be advised that this show includes depiction of war, the death of parents, physical violence, and discriminitory language ... all of which are essential to the telling of the story. If you have any questions/concerns regarding this subject matter, please don't hesitate to email purplecrayonplayers@gmail.com*
