Review: The Antipodes
Illustration by Dan Hillier
Their phones switched off, a group of peope sit around a table telling, categorising and theorising stories.
This is a world that is both familiar and fantastical.
Their real purpose is never quite clear, but they continue on, searching for the monstrous.
Part satire, part sacred rite, The Antipodes asks what value stories have for a world in crisis.

We're sorry but this play is a complete dud.
It isn't really funny, it doesn't tackle it's theme with any great imagination and frankly it was a waste of two hours.
