    The Antipodes

    It's the newest work from Pulitzer Prize-winner Annie Baker – the playwright of The Flick, The Aliens, Circle Mirror Transformation, and more – and, because Hyde Park Theatre's Ken Webster has, like, connections in the industry, this is only the second production of it in the country. This one's about professional fabulators in pursuit of the ultimate yarn, and the cast – oh my, the cast! – features Lowell Bartholomee, Tom Green, Anne Hulsman, Maria Latiolais, Saurabh Pradhan, Blake Robbins, Mical Trejo, Shanon Weaver, and Dave Yakubik, all directed by that same Webster. Note: Do yourself a big favor and see this one.
    Through Aug. 4. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $22-26 (Pay what you can, Thursdays).
