Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Annie Baker’s Circle Mirror Transformation examines character relationships by means of strange, confessional, often absurd acting exercises. Five mismatched individuals, ranging in age from 17 to 60, meet over a six-week period. The material they perform is by turns hilarious, embarrassing, and deeply moving.
