THE ANTIPODES by Annie Baker is postponed until further notice
Pulitzer Prize-winner, Annie Baker's latest extraordinary play is about people telling stories about telling stories. The Antipodes portrays a never-ending brainstorming session for unspecified purposes in an unspecified place. It evokes a world that is both familiar and fantastical, and leaves you glowing with a wondering satisfaction.

What people are saying
"Can't-Miss Portland Art Events This Spring: “No dwarves or elves or trolls.” That’s the first rule set forth in this play by Annie Baker, which chronicles a brainstorming session for a mysterious project. Baker—who also wrote the delectably surreal John—loves blasting through narrative conventions and into funny, fascinating new dimensions, making her work a natural fit for the boundary-breaking Shaking the Tree."- Bennett Campbell Ferguson, Willamette Week "Ms. Baker has established herself as one of the freshest voices in American theater.” - The New York Times "An intensely vivid hypnotizing act disguised as a play." - Time Out New York
