GSU theater presents 'Anon(ymous)'


September 21, 2017

Homer’s “Odyssey” is the inspiration for playwright Naomi Iizuka’s exploration of the immigration and the refugee experience in modern America. 

Directed by Lisa L. Abbott, “Anon(ymous)” shares the story of a young refugee named Anon, who journeys through the heart of the United States in search of his mother, Nemasani. Meanwhile, Nemasani has taken a job in a sweatshop, and patiently sews a shroud which she unthreads each night to stall the advances of the shop owner.

Complete with a modern day roaming goddess, a bewitching young beauty, the Cyclops, and dangerous sirens, Iizuka ingeniously re-images Homer’s epic to create a powerful metaphor for the immigrant and refugee experience.

Georgia Southern Theatre & Performance Program’s production of “Anon(ymous)” features Julian Austin as Anon, Annaliyah Ferguson-Salim as Nemasani, Deja Holmes as Naja (the goddess), and Rion Koon as Zyclo (the cyclops). 

“Anon(ymous)” runs Sept. 27-Oct. 4. All shows begin at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee performance on Oct. 1 at 2 p.m. There will be no show on Oct. 2. 

Student and youth tickets are $6. Faculty, staff and community tickets are $12. All seating is general admission. Group prices are available, contact the box office for information. The house opens at 7 p.m., and we encourage audience members to arrive no later than 7:15 p.m. to ensure good seats. The balcony will serve as overflow seating.

Call the box office at (912) 478-5379 to make reservations. Reservation requests can be left on box office voicemail 24 hours a day. 

The box office is open 3 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday for ticket purchases and reopens at 6 p.m. on performance days. Tickets can also be purchased through Marketplace on the GSU website at http://class.georgiasouthern.edu/cat/season.
