Peace of the City’s production of ‘Anon(ymous)’
February 13, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
At Ujima Theater (in School #77), 370 Normal Avenue, Buffalo 14213. Our first ever “Beyond Shakespeare” production presents “Anon(ymous)” by Naomi Iizuka, an ensemble take on a modern adaption of Homer’s “Odyssey”.
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.
Our courageous cast is made up for refugees and native Buffalonians, youth ages 9-19. This is a trip through The Odyssey you will not soon forget.
Doors will open at 6:00pm. First come, first seated.
There are no advance ticket sales. For the past 11 seasons, Peace Of The City has offered only “PAY WHAT YOU CAN” TICKETS so that everyone can enjoy Shakespeare and good theater. Your contributions towards Shakespeare Comes to (716) are necessary to continue this program for the students of Buffalo.
