Circle Mirror Transformation

Written by Annie Baker

February – April, 2011

Summary

What do a flirty former actress, a pouty 16-year-old, a hippie husband and a divorced carpenter have in common? Very little, or at least, that’s what they think, until each enrolls in a six week community acting class. In this hilarious and touching play we catch glimpses of the poignant drama that animates ordinary lives. Called an “absorbing, unblinking and sharply funny play” by the New York Times, Circle Mirror Transformation celebrates the subtle and surprising power of creativity.
Circle Mirror Transformation premiered in New York at Playwrights Horizons, won the 2010 Obie Award for Best New American Play and was voted one of the top ten plays of 2009 by the New York Times, Time Out New York, and The New Yorker. It was named one of the best plays of 2009-2010 in the latest edition of The Best Plays Theater Yearbook.
