There’s a struggle that Anon goes through and that the other characters go through that is universal. Anon’s journey shows that life is a journey that is filled with trials, but we can always find love and rewarding experiences that brings us back to who we really are. Feb 11, Amber Hooper rated it really anomi it Shelves: I enjoyed reading it and can imagine that actually seeing it performed would be amazing.
I saw the similarities to The Odyssey in a few elements, and I wonder how many other similarities there are that I’m missing. I love that anonymity ymus the main character and how that allows people to project or infer things about him abon like what race he is, where he is from, how old he is, etc.
Oct 04, Brynn Rova rated it really liked it. Funny, yet impactful adaptation. Feb 21, Daniel rated it liked it Shelves: Sometimes quite poignant; largely scattered. May 17, Jessica Barkl rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Recommended to Jessica by: Naomi Iizuka’s agent Morgan Jenness. I loved it then and I really loved this play now. I just finished producing it with an at-risk high school in Walla Walla, WA.
It was the school’s first play, and I thought a play dealing with identity issues was perfect. I find myself quoting many of the lines regularly and it doesn’t annoy me. The play was very well received in a town that only does musicals and popular theater favorites. I think this play was especially refreshing. I re-read this play yesterday August 31, as an option for the season at SUNY Sullivan, and I still really like the play. I did end up directing this for Lincoln Alternative High School’s inaugural production inbut I would really like to direct it again because the cast went through 10 changes and although I liked our product, I did feel that it was compromised because of all of the changes it went through.
Sep 18, KJ rated it liked it Shelves: I am in this show at Georgetown — still forming opinions, but they are mostly related to our interpretation of the work rather than the work itself. I think our director is doing a wonderful job imagining this world, but I can no longer tell how much of that is him and how much of that is Iizuka. When first reading the work, I was not that impressed, but throughout the rehearsal process, I began to feel more connected to the work and more appreciative of what it can accomplish.
