Season TWO of Toy Boat Theatre Continues!
After a two-and-a-half year hiatus following a six-month Spaceworks residency on MLK Way, Toy Boat Theatre woke up from "sleep mode" with a production of Jean Genet's infamous and sexy "The Maids" at King's Books, in July of 2014.
We have now joined forces with University of Washington, Tacoma, and the Tacoma Arts Commission, for our next production:
by Naomi Iizuka, based on Homer's epic "The Odyssey"
Directed by Marilyn Bennett
~~ A Beautiful, Gritty, & Contemporary Journey~~
Based upon Homer's epic The Odyssey, "Anon" is a beautiful, gritty, very contemporary re-telling of the "hero's journey", exploring themes of immigration, interculturalism, poverty, violence, family, and the meaning of home.
Performed by a company of eleven actors, including UWT students and community artists, the production promises a rich and moving portrait of the contemporary American myth of an immigrant
fleeing war and seeking home in this foreign country filled with immigrants.
It is a moving reflection of the diversity of UWT, our city, and our region, and is written to be accessible to broad audiences in age, ethnicity, and experience.
