Drama Program to Take Anon(ymous) on the Road

Northwood’s drama program recently announced some exciting news: they will take the play Anon(ymous) on the road. On Thursday, March 28th, the drama program of Northwood will be traveling as a full cast to Lynch Literacy Academy in Amsterdam, NY to perform the show in front of the entire high school in that school’s 400-seat auditorium.

Taking their show on the road is a great opportunity for students to perform under a different pressure than at school, the audience is not their friends.

Anon(ymous), written by Naomi Iizuka, was performed by the drama club at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts in February. The play is a modern retelling of Homer’s “The Odyssey.” It tells the story a young refugee called Anon is separated from his mother and 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. The play is directed by Ms. Noël Carmichael.

Noteworthy for this production is sophomore Noah Pittman joins the cast, replacing sophomore Charles Purcell, who is unavailable for this performance.
