“A young refugee called Anon, separated from his mother, 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” (Playscripts.com).
