In terms of material resources: performance spaces, rehearsal rooms, shops and state-of-the-art equipment. Also, in terms of human resources and the communities you find within universities.

A new home. People of all races, religions and ethnicities have always come here to escape persecution; to seek a better life for their children. Anon is one of those children, long ago separated from his mother by a shipwreck after fleeing their war-torn native land. As an adult, the nameless Anon becomes every political or economic refugee who ever gave up a piece of his identity to blend into the American melting pot.
And became anonymous. Though, as Everyman, he resonates more urgently here as a Latino wandering the country from honky-tonks to sweatshops in search of his mother.
More identifiable are his encounters with hobos, barkeeps and a man illegally trafficking immigrants out of his semi. Matthew Clark and Brandy Dawson accompany with Western-tinged live music. Literature is filled with the search for identity and home. The most tragic tales are of characters unnaturally separated by war, genocide or economic desperation.
Anon is all of that historic sadness in one. Whether colonial religious refugees, the Irish of years ago or the migrant workers of today, we are all Anon — or were at one time.
