★★★★★ “Utterly remarkable. Virtually unclassifiable.”

Time Out London

 

The week after Thanksgiving. A bed and breakfast in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. A cheerful host. A young couple whose relationship is disintegrating. Thousands of inanimate objects. Watching…

 

After the huge success of The Flick, Outhouse Theatre reunites with Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Annie Baker for the Sydney premiere of a rich, mysterious and haunting tour de force. Is it a ghost story? A love story? A spiritual story? Mysteries abound in this uncanny journey into the dark corners of the human soul and the divine.

 

“So good on so many levels that it casts a unique and brilliant light.”
New Yorker

 

“Baker’s true masterpiece.”
Slate

 

“A haunting and haunted meditation on topics Baker has made so singularly her own: the omnipresence of loneliness in human life, and the troubled search for love and lasting connection.”
New York Times

 

“Annie Baker is one of the most singular talents in modern theatre.”
Guardian

 

★★★★★ “Exquisite, disturbing and startlingly funny.”
The Stage
