‘I am homeless. I have no name.‘
-ANONYMOUS opens with Sean, a poet and the self-proclaimed oldest homeless man in Dublin, entertaining the crowd with his poetry. Enters Dolan, fresh out on the streets, lacking shoes and judgement. He is looking for a safe place to sleep and a way out of his current predicament. While they tease and gauge each other, we find out what brought them both to the streets of Dublin. As their past comes back to haunt them, the question arises of what their futures will be…
Mark Richardson’s -ANONYMOUS engages the audience through a reflection on homelessness in today’s Dublin. It humorously navigates timeless yet current topics such as prejudice, marriage, addiction, and friendship. The play has many facets which will entertain, unnerve and enlighten the audience to the humanity hidden at every street corner.
Written by Mark Richardson, -ANONYMOUS is directed by Nathalie Clement and produced by Purple Hare Theatre Company.
The Cast of -ANONYMOUS includes Zeff Lawless (Sean), Joe Clinton (Dolan), Conor Duffy (Dwayne), Fiona Coughlan (Marie) and Jordan Begley (Fiachra).

Always poetic, sometimes dramatic, the play is also funny and entertaining. Casting and actor’s performance are on point… Zeff, Brendan, Conor, Nathalie and Joe give life to their characters in a realistic yet so endearing way. Zeff Lawless is outstanding in the part of Sean the poet. This is a must-see play!”
