Clever, Relevant, Edgy, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if you want to see a show that presents changing relationships in a clever format

Don't see it if you want to see a play with deep meaning

Enjoyable, Smart, Quirky, Choppy

See it if you feel at home among pop-culture-saturated millennials and the way they talk; you want to see very contemporary people and ideas on stage.

Don't see it if you need to get emotionally invested in a plot or in rooting for individual characters. The structure of the play keeps you at arm's length. Read more

"With a strong ensemble, sharp writing, and timely discourse, 'The Conspiracists' will lead you down the 'rabbit hole' of conspiracy theories...All the actors are pretty much pitch-perfect...Baker, who also directs, does a fine job of peeling the layers off these people while at the same time not revealing too much, leaving much for the audience to wonder at...Like any good piece of theatre, the real drama is derived more from the personal relationships than the actual conspiracy theories."

"'The Conspiracists' displays the same rich, deeply human portrayal of knotty interpersonal dynamics as Baker's previous two plays...The structure includes clever interlocking elements among the parts, some more and some less subtle and some more and some less thematic...Anderson gets the flashiest role...The rest of the cast, however, make equally distinctive and funny showings...Its speculative elements are always firmly in service of its characters, to their and the audience's great benefit."

“This play is about a support group for younger conspiracy theorists who meet in a church basement. It is quirky, funny and surprisingly dark. The stilted narrative thread follows a strange sequence of events through three alternate realities. What's unclear is whether the actions in one reality always affect the other realities or if the sequences are happening simultaneously. The play does help us to reflect on various aspects of our own lives.”
