Living Image Arts presents Anchors, by Tony Zertuche, opening at Theatre Row's Kirk Theatre on 9 Feb 2008, following previews from 7 Feb and running through to 23 Feb 2008.
Anchors: Michael Goliad is stuck! He is stuck in his life, stuck on himself, and now...He's stuck in the Navy! As the US revs up for the first Gulf War, wannabe artist Goliad joins the Armed Forces to pay for college, but soon realizes what it really means to become Property of the U.S. Navy. Now Goliad must fight for love, life and the pursuit of manhood as he is shipped off to his first duty station in the Philippine Islands. All he wants is to be his own man, but both the Navy and a certain gorgeous Filipina have other plans. With the help of female recruit Lewis, his debauched bunk mate Shotz and a pair of tyrannical Company Commanders, Goliad's journey into manhood is haze gray and underway.
Directed by Eliza Beckwith, Anchors features Bryan Close, Helen Coxe, Andrew Eisenman, Laura Hall, Kyle Masteller, Banaue Miclat, Raushanah Simmons, Renaldy Smith and Kristin Villanueva.
The creative team comprises Elisha Schaefer (sets), Kim Walker (costumes), Wilburn O.Bonnell (lighting) and Geoffrey Roecker (sound).
