Circle Mirror Transformation - Traditional Seating

Written by Annie Baker
Directed by Renee Prince

In the small town of Shirley, Vermont, five strangers gather in a dance studio to embark on a unique journey together in a creative drama class for adults. Taught by Marty, their free-spirited and supportive leader, the group -- Schultz, a recently divorced, emotionally vulnerable carpenter, Teresa, an earnest and vibrant former actress, James, Marty’s quiet and genial husband, and Lauren, a reserved and self-conscious high schooler -- move through a series of acting exercises, ranging from the heartbreaking to the ridiculous. In this one small room, through these few seemingly trivial games, quiet wars are waged, emotional wounds are nursed, and healing is finally, slowly, able to begin. In Annie Baker’s quiet masterpiece, Circle Mirror Transformation, the audience takes a transcendent journey through the mundane into the profound.

Traditional Seating Performances

Patron tickets: $30

Advocate tickets: $20*

This performance utilizes traditional seating — that is, the theatre's full capacity. At this point, masks are required and audience members must be prepared to show proof of full vaccination (vaccination card or a photograph thereof).

*Ticket prices are $30. However, Thunder River Theatre Co. prioritizes accessibility and equity in its programming and pricing structures. Acknowledging that the pandemic has created unique financial situations for everyone, we've created a $20 option for anyone who needs it. Just as we offer this option in good faith, we simply ask it be used on an honor system.
