About Annie Baker’s Antipodes: The Antipodes is a play about people telling stories about telling stories. The Antipodes is a play about people telling stories about telling stories. Their phones switched off, a group of people sit around a table telling, categorizing and theorizing stories. Ambiguous in their objective, they tell personal stories and share opinions around a table reminiscent of a writer’s room, led by an increasingly distant boss. An ambitious adventure in form and style, this Annie Baker play is traditionally 2f, 7m but we encourage you to be flexible in your vision. 

For more information on the play, including information about accessing the script, please be in touch via email to [email protected]
