Annie Baker's 'The Antipodes' is about stories: who tells them, who hears them, how they're made, how they make our world. It's about access: who is allowed to speak, and who gets excused from listening. It's about the slipperiness of truth and the weird, incisive power of fiction. It's about myths and monsters. It's about giant cosmic changes and tiny human ones.
It's also about the singular ability of a conference room of people to decimate a pallet of LaCroix.
