  • August 23 – September 8, 2019
    Directed by Bonnie Hill

    Director Bonnie Hill brings the contemporary piece, Circle Mirror Transformation to the stage in August. Playwright Annie Baker weaves the tale of four lost New Englanders who enroll in a six-week-long community-center drama class. While they experiment with harmless games, hearts are quietly torn apart and tiny wars of epic proportions are waged and won. A beautifully crafted diorama, a petri dish in which we see (with hilarious detail and clarity) the antic sadness of a motley quintet. Fridays and Saturdays 8 p.m. Sundays 2 p.m.

  • The idea of working in series or in distinct purposeful directions is not about repetition but rather about being able to explore, investigate, examine or address ideas, themes, issues, compositions, concepts or topics in progressively deeper and more meaningful ways, and from a greater variety of perspectives than is possible by making just one or two.
    Come in to explore the connections the artists have made with their series of work.
