Home » Production History » The Further Adventures of Anse and Bhule in No-man’s Land


FURTHER ADVENTURES OF ANSE AND BHULE IN NO-MAN’S LAND is a post-apocalyptic tale of Anse and Bhule, two brethren who wander a barren and desolate landscape after a global collapse. Their lives are forever changed when they encounter an ailing teacher and her daughter, also survivors, who shatter their ritualized beliefs. Winner of multiple Dramalogue awards (LA) and Drammy awards (Portland), playwright Tania Myren devises a made-up language for some of her characters that has been described as “Chaucerian.” Don’t miss this unique and compelling drama which promises to be unlike anything seen on Seattle’s stages this fall.
