Circle Mirror Transformation
Directed by Lauren Bartelt
By Annie Baker
When four lost New Englanders who enroll in Marty’s six-week-long community-center drama class begin to experiment with harmless games, hearts are quietly torn apart, and tiny wars of epic proportions are waged and won. A beautifully crafted diorama, a petri dish in which we see, with hilarious detail and clarity, the antic sadness of a motley quintet.
Circle Mirror Transformation won a New York Drama Critics Circle Award and the 2010 Obie Award for Best New American Play.
