Circle Mirror Transformation


Peter Jay Sharp Theater

Written by   Annie Baker
Directed by  Sam Gold

When four lost New Englanders enrolled in Marty’s community center drama class experiment with harmless games, hearts are quietly torn apart and tiny wars of epic proportions are waged and won.  Annie Baker’s new comedy is a beautifully crafted diorama, a petri dish in which we see, with terrific detail and clarity, the hilarious sadness of a motley quintet.

Reviews

Interview

Adam Greenfield and Annie Baker

Annie Baker: I hate talking about my work. The first reason is the obvious one, and it applies to writing about my work, too: I think that the play should speak for itself. Reason number two is more embarrassing—I’m just a really nervous person and I hate the sound of my own voice and I regret everything that I’ve said two seconds after I’ve said it.
