This weekend is a college and university theatre festival of sorts, with six productions playing around the Triangle. Of particular interest is NCSU’s University Theatre staging of Naomi Iizuka’s “Anon(ymous),” a contemporary adaptation of Homer’s “Odyssey.” A young refugee, separated from his mother, journeys around the U.S., encountering bewildering people and places (through Nov. 22).
