The Antipodes

Sunday, August 25, 2019, 9:00 PM - 11:00 PM

Annie Baker's 'The Antipodes' is about stories: who tells them, who hears them, how they're made, how they make our world. It's about access: who is allowed to speak, and who gets excused from listening. It's about the slipperiness of truth and the weird, incisive power of fiction. It's about myths and monsters. It's about giant cosmic changes and tiny human ones. It's also about the singular ability of a conference room of people to decimate a pallet of LaCroix. written by Annie Baker directed by Dustin Trabert stage managed by Caitlin Sussman lights by Zane Suarez performed by Ryan Asbert Jesse Calixto Vid Hardt Adrian Alonzo Padilla Maren Patrick Tim Platt Sean Sanford Tim Takechi Emily Jo Testa Annie Baker's other plays include John (Obie Award for Collaboration, Drama Desk and Lucille Lortel nominations for Best Play), The Flick (Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Hull-Warriner Award, Susan Smith Blackburn Award, Obie Award for Playwriting, UK Critics Circle Award for Best New Play), Circle Mirror Transformation (Obie Award for Best New American Play, Drama Desk nomination for Best Play), The Aliens (Obie Award for Best New American Play), Body Awareness (Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle nominations for Best Play/Emerging Playwright), and an adaptation of Chekhov's Uncle Vanya (Drama Desk nomination for Best Revival), for which she also designed the costumes.
