It’s a First — for Everyone


Actors’ Reading Collective (ARC) is excited to announce that we have been granted the rights to present the West Coast Premiere of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, Annie Baker’s The Antipodes!

We’re thrilled to say that this will be the first chance for audiences outside of New York and London to see this beautiful, funny, heart-breaking piece about our deep need to tell and share stories.

ARC is an actor-led theater company of seasoned professionals and Bay Area favorites. Our company grew from online readings during lockdown. With your help, ARC is ready to move from the page to the stage: The Antipodes will be ARC’s first fully produced, staged, in-person play.

Wondering where you come in? If you’re willing, this is your cue to enter! 

To make these exciting firsts a reality, we need your help to raise $40,000.

No contribution is too small. Your generous  tax-deductible donation will directly pay the actors, designers, director, and playwright for this milestone premiere.

With your help, The Antipodes will run for four weeks in November of 2024 at Marin Shakespeare’s new studio space on 4th St. in San Rafael. Opening Friday, Nov. 8th, running Thursdays-Sundays until Dec 1st.

More exciting news: ARC’s production will be directed by Alyson Schacherer, a member of New York’s esteemed Barrow Group.

So what do you say? Wanna be on the ground floor of launching the next great theater company, and be one of the first people in 3,000 miles to witness one of Annie Baker’s latest works of genius?

If you can, please join us in this feast of firsts by donating what you can.

Many thanks,

The Actors of ARC
