Circle Mirror Transformation
by Annie Baker
“It’s natural.” “It is?” “Weird, right?” “Well, it’s beautiful.” When an unlikely company of strangers come together to take a community acting class in a small town in Vermont, they discover more about themselves then about Stanislavski, Hagen, or Meisner. As they hilariously participate in acting exercises sure to teach them something (right?), they find that the true study is in their own growth, exploration, and discovery. As they’re cracked open, surrounded by the trappings of the studio, the powerful class exercises inspire both teacher and students to face their lives with greater courage. This beautiful, moment-to-moment dramedy by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Annie Baker explores the catalyst for intimate self-discovery in the most humorous of settings.
