'Circle Mirror Transformation'

Circle Mirror Transformation

FEB 21-MAR 16, 2014

by Annie Baker
Directed by Matthew Decker

ANNIE BAKER'S PLAY IS AN ABSOLUTE FEAST. IT IS THE KIND OF UNHERALDED GEM THAT SENDS PEOPLE INTO THE STREETS BABBLING AND BRIGHT-EYED WITH THE DESIRE TO SPREAD THE WORD.
     —The New York Times

A divorced carpenter, a failed actress and an aging hippie enroll in a community-center drama class in a small Vermont town. As they begin to experiment with harmless games, hearts are quietly torn apart. A beautifully crafted diorama in which we see, with hilarious detail and clarity, regular people undergoing titanic transformations.
