Critic’s Pick! “Endlessly fascinating […] in-all-ways-fabulous […] The Antipodes leaves you glowing with a wondering satisfaction. I mean the happy satiety that comes from being in the hands of a real right-brain/left-brain author who channels her ineffable instincts with a master artisan’s practical skills […] Ms. Baker has established herself as one of the freshest voices in American theater.” - The New York Times, Read More
"An intensely vivid hypnotizing act disguised as a play." - Time Out New York, Read More
Tantalizing […] In John, a play set in a quaintly eerie bed and breakfast, Baker flirted with occult suspense. Here, in a drama confined to a fluorescent room […] she edges into symbolist territory. Baker’s signature hyper-realism makes room for an irrational dimension that lightly evokes the supernatural enigmas of Maurice Maeterlinck and August Strindberg." - Los Angeles Times
