Pulitzer Prize-winner Annie Baker dissects human behavior through the microscope of an acting class with Circle Mirror Transformation, the title of which is taken from a classroom theatre game intended to generate trust, teamwork, and connection. Instead, tiny wars of epic proportions are waged, and the six-week class transforms into a cascade of epiphanies and dashed hopes.

There will be an Understudy Performance on Tuesday, May 9, at 7:30pm.
