Circle Mirror Transformation

Written by Annie Baker

Directed by Daniel Elihu Kramer

August 10-20


Five very different people come together in a Vermont community center for an amateur acting class. They are there to learn about performing, but their games and exercises teach them more about themselves and each other than they do about theatre.


“Annie Baker’s play is an absolute feast. Circle Mirror Transformation is the kind of unheralded gem that sends people into the streets babbling and bright-eyed with the desire to spread the word.” (New York Times)


Former CTC Producing Artistic Director Daniel Elihu Kramer returns to direct. Tara Franklin joins the ensemble. Corinna May (two-time 2022 Berkie winner for Outstanding Solo Performance in Shirley Valentine at Berkshire Theatre Group and Outstanding Supporting Actress in Great Barrington Public Theater’s Things I Know to Be True) and Hero Marguerite make their CTC debuts, and Joel Ripka returns to the Town Hall stage for the first time since appearing in Conor McPherson’s The Night Alive. (CTC audiences will also remember his Berkie-winning performance in CTC’s Every Brilliant Thing.) Juliana von Haubrich will design scenery, Lara Dubin designs lights, Christina Beam designs costumes, and Nathan Leigh is designing sound. Meg Lydon will return to stage manage her second show of the season.
