When the four students in Marty’s creative drama class experiment with harmless theatre games, hearts are quietly torn apart and tiny wars of epic proportions are waged and won. Set in a dance studio at the local community centre, this bittersweet play unveils the comedy and tragedy of our ordinary human dramas. Mixing antic sadness and hilarious detail, Circle Mirror Transformation is a beautifully crafted new comedy that became a runaway hit Off Broadway.
I fell head over heels in love with this quirky, tender comedy by American playwright Annie Baker. The story unfolds over the six weeks of a creative drama class for adults. It features a wonderful collection of characters who slowly reveal themselves through a series of improvisational drama exercises. Poignant and funny, this play recently snagged the 2010 OBIE Award for Best New American Play.
