“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.
