Called an “absolute feast” and “unheralded gem,” Obie award and Pulitzer prize-winner Annie Baker’s extraordinary, multiple award-winning play, Circle Mirror Transformation, explores the lives of a group of small town Vermonters through the minutely detailed lens of those characters taking an acting class.  While the theatre games and exercises they play begin harmlessly enough, over time, we see tiny wars being waged, hearts being broken, and the yearnings, regrets, and deepest secrets of each member of the class being revealed. With affection, empathy, quiet drama, and the magnificent eye and ear of a detailed miniaturist, Baker lays bare the souls of her characters in this funny and quietly devastating contemporary American masterpiece.
