Set in a church basement, this World Premiere play follows an under-35 Conspiracy Theorist Support Group as they wrestle with their convictions, perceptions, and each other's personalities. The Conspiracists reveals how much we are influenced by other people, and how little we think we are.
Whether you believe in Chem-trails, tainted fluoride, UFO's, Inside Jobs, The Mandela Effect, JFK plots, or that Justin Beiber is a reptilian, The Conspiracists is sure to challenge your reality in ways you won't expect.
The cast will feature Lisa Jill Anderson, Sofiya Cheyenne, Alice Johnson, Arthur Kriklivy, Ricki Lynée, and Ian Poake with Sound Design by Andy Evan Cohen, Scenic Design by Ian Poake, and Lighting Design by Jeremiah Stuart.
Max Baker (Playwright/Director) grew up on a dead-end cobble-stoned street of the no-man's-land between Tufnell Park and Archway, in North London. Karl Marx's grave is right around the corner. When he was 21, Max moved to Durant, Oklahoma, and subsequently to Detroit, Portland OR, Chicago and New York. He received an MA in playwriting from Washington State University and has worked professionally as an actor, playwright and director for over 20 years. In 2010 his post-apocalyptic dystopian existential musical The Eeelwax Jesus 3-D Pop Music Show was produced at Contemporary American Theatre Festival to critical acclaim (and astonishment), and in 2015 his short film Best Wishes From Millwood won the Audience Award at Austin Film Festival. His acting credits include London's West End, as well as On and Off-Broadway, working with The New Group, the Roundabout, at the Public, MTC, MCC and most recently appearing in Ars Nova's production of Small Mouth Sounds at the Signature. Film credits include: Hail, Caesar!, Newlyweds, Revolutionary Road, Constantine, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, Life or Something Like It, The Island. TV includes: "The Blacklist", "Law & Order", "Law & Order SVU", "NYPD Blue", "Chicago Fire", "Medium", "Felicity", "Fringe" & "The Leftovers". The Conspiracists marks Max's third collaboration with Stable Cable Lab Co., previously writing and directing Live From the Surface of the Moon and Because Me with the company.
