In "Circle Mirror Transformation," the four students in Marty’s creative drama class experiment with theater games as hearts are quietly torn apart and tiny wars are waged and won. Set in a Shirley, Vermont, community center, this gentle new comedy became a runaway hit Off-Broadway. The New York Times called it “absorbing, unblinking, and sharply funny.” "Circle Mirror Transformation" is the Huntington’s offering in "The Shirley, Vermont Plays" festival of plays by the breakout writer Annie Baker.

"Vengeance is the Lord’s" is a world premiere from edgy and insightful playwright Bob Glaudini, a John Gassner Playwriting Award recipient. The Horvath family forgives their trespassers -- all but one. A mother's call for mercy clashes with a father's need for retribution when their daughter's murderer comes up for parole. Sharp comedy and tough love drive this searing but funny new drama, which unfolds at dinners from Thanksgiving to Easter. The play's modern American family asks a classic moral question: what can we do when “justice” is not enough? Huntington Artistic Director Peter DuBois reunites with Glaudini to direct, having previously collaborated on "Jack Goes Boating" with Philip Seymour Hoffman for LAByrinth Theater Company and "A View from 151st Street," also with LAByrinth.

Discounted tickets are available for the following performances of "Vengeance is the Lord’s:"
