Circle Mirror Transformation Summary

Circle Mirror Transformation by Annie Baker

Thanks, you guys. I think this was a really, really great start. Five lost people come together at a community centre class to try and find some meaning in their lives. Counting to ten can be harder than you think. Over six tangled weeks their lives become knotted together in this tender and funny play. Annie Baker's Circle Mirror Transformation won a New York Drama Critics Circle Award and the 2010 Obie Award for Best New American Play. It was voted one of the top ten plays of 2009 by the New York Times, Time Out and the New Yorker. It premiered in the UK as part of the Royal Court's Theatre Local strand of site specific productions across London.

Circle Mirror Transformation Reviews

The way that a complete picture of each of the characters is built up is stunningly accurate. A little room sucks in the whole world -- Aleks Sierz The Arts Desk A disarming surprise... remarkably open-minded in its supple, low-key way, shifting from the preposterous to the poignant, the tender to the silly, with a sharply observant but uncensorious spirit. -- Paul Taylor Independent Baker's writing is compassionate, cinematic (in an understated sort of way) and wonderfully, wonderfully droll. -- Andrzej Lukowski Time Out Baker is a perceptive observer of human frailty. -- Henry Hitchings Evening Standard A quirky, entertaining and quietly poignant piece... Scenes as apparently aimless as a group count-up to 10 or a dialogue improvised using nonsense words acquire a sudden powerful intensity as latent emotions bubble to the surface. -- Dominic Cavendish Daily Telegraph
