Award-Winning "Circle Mirror Transformation"
Part Of The Shirley, VT Plays Festival
The Huntington Theatre Company continues its 29th season with "Circle Mirror Transformation," an acclaimed new comedy by Annie Baker. Melia Bensussen directs. Performances run October 15 – November 14 at the Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts.
In "Circle Mirror Transformation," four students in Marty’s creative drama class experiment with harmless theatre games.
Set in the Shirley, Vermont, community center, hearts are quietly torn apart and tiny wars of epic proportions are waged and won in this gentle new comedy that mixes antic sadness with hilarious detail.
The ensemble cast includes Boston favorites Michael Hammond ("Prelude to a Kiss" at the Huntington) as James, and Jeremiah Kissel ("Two Men of Florence" and "The Cherry Orchard" at the Huntington) as Schultz, along with Betsy Aidem as Marty, Nadia Bowers as Theresa, and Marie Polizzano as Lauren.
"Circle Mirror Transformation" is the Huntington’s contribution to The Shirley, VT Plays festival, a landmark local collaboration among three Boston theatre companies this fall to produce breakout writer Annie Baker’s first three plays .
The festival also includes "Body Awareness,"
produced by SpeakEasy Stage Company (October 22 –
November 20) and "The Aliens," produced by
Company One (October 22 – November 20). With all
three set in the fictional town of Shirley, VT, the plays will run together
in the first-ever festival dedicated to the work of this wryly observant
young writer, which is being curated by the Huntington.
