Circle Mirror Transformation

a contemporary dramatic play by Annie Baker,

directed by Mark Spencer

When four lost New Englanders who enroll in Marty's six-week-long community-center drama class begin to experiment with harmless games, 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.  CMT opened off-Broadway in 2009 and received the Obie Award for Best New American Play.
