Circle Mirror Transformation, by Annie Baker
Fri, February 16, 2018 @ 7:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 7:30 pm, repeating until Sat, February 17, 2018
The second in our series of three Annie Baker plays, in a staged reading directed by WWU Professor Rich Brown.
When four lost New Englanders who enroll in a 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.
“…an absolute feast. CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION is the kind of unheralded gem that sends people into the streets babbling and bright-eyed with the desire to spread the word. The play traces the lives of a handful of small-town Vermont residents who gather each week for an acting class taught at the local community center. 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.”—New York Times
