The Antipodes

Annie Baker

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

In an anonymous conference room of water bottle boxes, 8 creatives battle to tell a brand-new original story for some unknown reason. Under the guidance of their renowned 'good-guy boss' Sandy, the creatives revel in and struggle to share their own anecdotes and beliefs without losing their seat at the table.

Set against an ambiguous world of storms, disease and corporate higher-ups, Annie Baker's The Antipodes asks us about the meaning and creation of stories in a world of crisis.

This production is recommended for ages 15 and above.

This amateur production is presented by an arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd.
