Following acclaimed runs of The Flick and John, Pulitzer Prize-winner Annie Baker returns to the National Theatre with her latest extraordinary play. Their phones switched off, a group of people sit around a table telling, categorising and theorising stories.
This is a world that is both familiar and fantastical. Their real purpose is never quite clear, but they continue on, searching for the monstrous.
The Antipodes asks what value stories have for a world in crisis.
‘One of the freshest voices in American theatre.’
