ABOUT: An absorbing, unblinking and sharply funny play which 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. The theatre “games” are funny, imaginative and sometimes absurd, but the real drama lies beneath the games—where secrets come to light in unexpected ways. By the play’s end we seem to see to the very bottom of these souls, and feel how the acting class has shaped their lives in substantial ways.
Charles Isherwood of The New York Times declared the Obie Award winning play, Circle Mirror Transformation,“the kind of unheralded gem that sends people into the streets babbling and bright-eyed with the desire to spread the word.”
