Circle Mirror Transformation by Annie Baker
Aftershow Q&A on Monday 16 March, 7.30pm
In a small town in New England, five strangers gather to embark on creative drama classes for adults. After six weeks of drama exercises and games, they find themselves opening up to one another in unexpected ways.
Annie Baker’s play, one of several set in a fictional small town in Vermont, premiered in 2009 off-Broadway and won the Obie Award for Best New American Play. It had its European premiere in a community arts centre in Haggerston, with a cast including RADA graduates Imelda Staunton, Fenella Woolgar and Danny Webb. Baker’s other works include John, The Antipodes, The Flick and The Aliens.
Charlotte Gwinner has directed a wide range of new work and classics on main stages and in studios. She was winner of The Quercus Award for Theatre Directors in 2014 and has held Associate Director positions at the Bush Theatre, Liverpool’s Everyman and Playhouse Theatres and at Sheffield Theatres where she directed Waiting for Godot and two plays in the Sarah Kane season. She was Head of Artistic Programme at Clean Break from 2017-2018.
