Original, compelling, and beautifully produced

At a time when pop culture is dusting off and rehashing old stories and properties, particularly with productions slowed and theaters closed, leave it to Antaeus—themselves traditionally known for refreshing classical works—to make the most of these unprecedented times by giving us The Zip Code plays.

Written, performed, and produced by exceptional talents who you may know already from their work on stage and screen, these delightful, thrilling, and thoughtful little stories will take you on a much needed ride (and not merely to the zip codes in question).

brilliant concept and thoroughly enjoyable!

these are all a great listen, and they have been well reviewed by the Los Angeles Times and LA Weekly. if you have to start with one, go to "Annexing the Palisades" written by Alex Goldberg. brilliant!!
