A minute of this is an infinity

Five women in Northern California lie outside on chaise longues and philosophise.

Annie Baker’s (The Flick, The Antipodes) new play is a surprisingly funny inquiry into the complexity of suffering, and what it means to desire in a body that’s failing you.

James Macdonald (The Welkin, John) directs this bold, dreamlike story, direct from a run at the Tony Award®-winning Atlantic Theater Company in New York.

‘Annie Baker is one of the most singular talents in modern theatre.’



The New American Work Programme is supported by Lawton W Fitt & James I McLaren Foundation.



Please note: this production contains adult themes and language. Latecomers will not be admitted to the Circle and Pit.
