Annie Baker is a masterful writer, and The Antipodes is her most complex and surprising work to date. Baker’s nuanced characters and pithy dialogue are as true as ever, and yet The Antipodes transcends the micro.

The script demands every inch of you, and working with our terrific ensemble and creative team on this production has been a joyful adventure into the world of possibility. When you witness their beautiful work, you’ll see what I mean. I continue to marvel at the lightness of touch with which Baker addresses her immense ideas and themes.

Our final preview tonight is fully booked, and following the sell-out success of our last show, Fury, I encourage you to come along early.

I look forward to seeing you in the theatre,

Ella Caldwell
Artistic Director
