2010 OBIE Award Winner for Best New American Play

"...absorbing, unblinking and sharply funny..." -NY Times

What do a flirty former actress, a teen-aged girl, a hippie husband
and a divorced carpenter have in common? At first glance, not much.
Circle Mirror Transformation
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. They soon learn more about each other and themselves
than they bargained for, revealing secrets that they never intended
and transforming in ways they never expected. 
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.
...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.
