Antaeus’ usual excellence in a wonderful new format!

Turns out theatrical experiences of the highest caliber CAN be made and experienced during a pandemic. Every aspect of this series is excellent, from the sound design to the thoughtful and fascinating introductions by the host to … of course … the writing and acting. Top tier, across the board. Highest recommendation!

I LOVE THIS!

I am having an absolute blast listening to The Zip Code Plays! I've always been a fan of old time radio dramas, so this is making me so happy! So much fun and very professionally done. It's making me want to get stuck in traffic so I can keep listening to more and more! Way to go Antaeus Theatre Company. Thanks for sharing these plays with us!
