Lovely reviews already in --

"Whip-smart, superbly performed examination of storytelling. Stellar ensemble work from this entire company. Director Ken Webster has done a beautiful job keeping a show where the actors are anchored to the constraints of a meeting room alive and engaging. A superb evening of theatre that will make you laugh and give you plenty of food for thought long after the curtain call. The best kind of theatrical experience you can hope for. I highly recommend you catch this one."
- Broadway World Austin

"Obtaining the rights for this show is a triumphant coup for Hyde Park Theatre, and director Ken Webster, a first-class design team and engaging cast of actors absolutely make the most of it. The top-notch cast members, many of whom never leave the stage, consistently milk the text for every iota of entertainment. Webster [brings] pitch-perfect casting, rapid-fire transitions and absolute trust in his actors."
- Austin American Statesman

"Sparkling writing. Brilliant cast. The nuggets in this play should cause audiences to jam the theatre to mine them all."
- Central Texas Live Theatre

"The Antipodes" by Annie Baker at Hyde Park Theatre from Eric Graham on Vimeo.

The newest work from the playwright of HPT hits like John, The Flick, The Aliens, Circle Mirror Transformation, and Body Awareness --the "endlessly fascinating, deeply funny" The Antipodes.

The New York Times wrote, "Just exactly how many kinds of stories are there, anyway? The tallies vary in 'The Antipodes,' Annie Baker’s in-all-ways fabulous new play about professional fabulators in pursuit of the ultimate yarn. Endlessly fascinating. Deeply funny. 'The Antipodes' leaves you glowing with a wondering satisfaction."

The Antipodes is directed by Ken Webster and features Lowell Bartholomee, Tom Green, Anne Hulsman, Maria Latiolais, Saurabh Pradhan, Blake Robbins, Mical Trejo, Shanon Weaver, and Dave Yakubik.

The Antipodes runs at 8:00 PM on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, July 5 - August 4, 2018. Thursdays are Pay What You Can Nights at the door. For the first four weeks (July 5 - 28), Friday tickets are $22 and Saturday tickets are $24. For the final weekend (August 2 - 4), Friday tickets are $24 and Saturday tickets are $26, and we have added a matinee show Saturday August 4 at 2pm.
