CRITICS PICK! "In-all-ways fabulous...Ms. Baker delivers a complete and confident narative...The Antipodes is also deeply funny, but it’s naturally funny, and if it’s a satire, it’s an organic one. This playwright doesn’t need to exaggerate to elicit what’s absurd in the human condition." - The New York Times

"An intensely vivd hypnotizing act disguised as a play." - TimeOut NY, Read More 

"We need stories. Baker, offering us a profusion of them, also offers the scary suggestion that our culture may have worked through all its available stories, that the end of our storytelling has come. But what can that mean except — that we begin again." - The Village Voice, Read More 

"It’s a playfully compelling piece but there are also darker apocalyptic undercurrents." - The Stage (UK), Read More
