Collin Theatre Center Stages "Anon(ymous)"

Oct. 4, 2016 – Collin Theatre Center will stage “Anon(ymous)” by Naomi Iizuka as the second show of its 2016-2017 season, Oct. 6-16 at Collin College’s John Anthony Theatre.

Directed by Collin College Professor of Theatre Gail Cronauer, “Anon(ymous)” is the story of Anon, a young refugee separated from his mother, who takes an epic journey across the United States, meeting good, bad and ugly along the way. “Anon(ymous)” is an emotional and humorous contemporary retelling of Homer’s “Odyssey.”

“On one level, ‘Anon(ymous)’ is a modern reimagining of Ulysses battling gods and goddesses, outwitting the Cyclops and the Sirens, and returning to his family after the Trojan War,” Cronauer says. “On another level, it is a story of struggle, survival, searching for home, remembering who we are, where we have come from and where we might yet go: it is everyone's story.”

The John Anthony Theatre is located on Collin College’s Spring Creek Campus, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano. For tickets and performance times visit www.collintheatrecenter.com .
