Circle Mirror Transformation

By Annie Baker
Published in volume The Vermont Plays

In a small town in Vermont, New England, five unlikely strangers come together in their community centre for a creative drama class for adults. The free-spirited Marty, recently divorced Schulz, former actress Teresa, the self-conscious high school student Lauren and Marty’s quiet husband, James.

Over six weeks of drama exercises and games ranging from the hilarious to the heartbreaking, their lives become entangled and transformed in the most humorous and moving ways.

Annie Baker's quiet masterpiece, Circle Mirror Transformation, opened Off-Broadway in 2009 and received the 2010 Obie Award for Best New American Play. It was voted one of the top ten plays of 2009 by the New York Times, Time Out and the New Yorker.

Available in the volume The Vermont Plays.
