RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Off-Broadway

A group gathers at a remote ranch in the Texas Hill country to mourn the loss of a friend they haven’t seen in years. As the group mines through their pasts, it may be more than just the loss of a friend that binds them. The past and present begin to blur in Anne Washburn's haunting exploration of friendship and loss.

"...a realistic, disarming ghost tale...Antlia Pneumatica is a tender examination of everyday concerns, including lapsed friendships, regrets, parenting and death, with dark humor and some supernatural undertones." - Associated Press, Read More
