Circle Mirror Transformation

by Annie Baker, directed by Jacqueline Donnaruma

February 15-17, 2019 (Fri-Sun)

In an artsy small town, an unlikely collection of strangers decides to sign up for Marty's "Adult Creative Drama" class. As their relationships develop over the course of the summer, the awkward, seemingly silly theater games they play generate real-life drama. “By the play’s end we seem to see to the very bottom of these souls, and feel how the artificial intimacy of the acting class has shaped their lives in substantial ways.” NY Times.  Playwright Annie Baker won the Pulitzer Prize in 2015.
