SWC Theatre Department to Present “ANON(YMOUS)”

CHULA VISTA ­-- The Theatre Department of the School of Arts and Communication proudly presents “ANON(YMOUS),” local playwright Naomi Iizuka’s story of a young refugee boy searching for his mother.

This thought-provoking adaptation of Homer’s “Odyssey” sends Anon questing across a chaotic American landscape. Some of the people he meets are kind, some dangerous and some cruel, from a sinister one-eyed butcher to beguiling barflies in a sweatshop.

“Iizuka has created a fantastical world peopled with unpredictable characters, bustling with exciting action sequences, and filled with richly lyrical and evocative language,” says Southwestern College theatre instructor Ruff Yeager. “’Anon(ymous)’ is theatrical with a capital 'T'! This is the kind of theatre I love to make and this is the kind of art I'm proud to bring to our Southwestern campus.”

The production was designed by SWC theatre associate professor Mike Buckley. 

Under the direction of Yeager, the cast includes: Yvette Angulo, Chris Ansotigue, Erick Berumen, Rosario Galendez, Daniel Gil,  James Gomez, Andre Gonzales, Albert Molina, Juan Palomino, Giselle Pimentel, Roman Rodriguez, Summer Session, Joanna Sweet, Victoria  Ortiz, and Angel  Zamora.

“ANON(YMOUS)” opens March 14 and concludes with a Sunday afternoon matinee on March 25. Performances are 7:30 p.m. March 14-17 & March 21-24 and at 2 p.m. March 25 in Mayan Hall Theatre.

Tickets are $12 general admission and $8 for students, seniors and SWC staff. The box office opens one hour before each performance and accepts all major credit cards, checks and cash. Ticket information is available at (619) 482-6367. Free parking is available in Lot O. Handicapped parking is available in Lot A.
