The Antipodes

Annie Baker

CRITICS PICK! "In-all-ways fabulous...Ms. Baker delivers a complete and confident narative...The Antipodes is also deeply funny, but it’s naturally funny, and if it’s a satire, it’s an organic one. This playwright doesn’t need to exaggerate to elicit what’s absurd in the human condition." - The New York Times

“It's all so sharp, and so pertinent, venturing to worlds where most playwrights fear to tread. Hours after the performance had ended, I found I was still thinking of the play and its themes, pulling at threads, thrilled by its rich ambition. Annie Baker. What a writer.” – WhatsOnStage

“… another cryptic masterpiece from Annie Baker” – Time Out

“The truth is that beneath its laconic surface, The Antipodesis endlessly shifting and complex, and it’s about an enormous number of things.” – Time Out

“It's a play that, through an intricate intertwining of subject and form, asks big questions about the purpose of stories, who gets to tell them, and whether they can or should have a real-world impact.” – Broadway World

“Although less emotionally devastating than some of her other work, with the distancing of its experimentation, it's still spry, surprising, very funny, and likely to haunt the subconscious…” – Broadway World
