Awarded the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for her whip smart tribute-to-cinema-comedy The Flick, Annie Baker has risen to the forefront of modern American theatre with erudite works that explore the complexities and simplicities of the human condition. The celebrated playwright brings her latest work to LA's Mark Taper Forum for the venue's latest 2019/20 season, helmed by award-winning director Lila Neugebauer.
A play about people telling stories about telling stories, The Antipodes is an extraordinary new work that revels in the ambiguous. Set in a conference room, it chronicles the meetings of... an undisclosed team of people who are participating in brainstorming sessions for... an unspecified project that involves the fantasy genre. Led by the baseball cap-toting boss Sandy, who is adamant they're not to include dwarves, elves or trolls in the story, the ensemble reccounts deeply personal stories and anecdotes, from first sexual encounters to their deepest regrets, in order to get the wheels turning.
Opening night: 11 April 2020
