Annie Baker’s new play Infinite Life will open at the National Theatre this November following a world premiere at The Atlantic Theatre Company in New York.
Baker’s 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.
The show will star Marylouise Burke, Mia Katigbak, Christina Kirk, Kristine Nielsen, Brenda Pressley and Pete Simpson.
Infinite Life will have set design by dots, costume design by Ásta Hostetter, lighting design by Isabella Byrd, sound design by Bray Poor and props design by Noah Mease.
The piece is a co-produciton with the National Theatre and Atlantic Theater Company.
Infinite Life will run in the Dorfman theatre from 22 November 2023 until 13 January 2024.
