Dark Horse Theatre Company to Present CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION

Dark Horse Theatre Company will stage a black box production of Annie Baker's 'Circle Mirror Transformation', the story of five strangers in a small town in Vermont who embark on a unique journey through a community center drama class.

Community center director Marty (Carole Preston) helms a weekly adult creative drama class comprised of a recently divorced, carpenter named Schultz (Ken Gilfillan), a magnetic former actress Teresa (Jackie Jacobi), Marty's intellectual husband James (Randall Kish), and self-conscious high schooler Lauren (Arden DiManno). Through a series of seemingly trivial acting exercises, quiet wars are waged, comedy ensues, emotional wounds are nursed, and healing is finally able to begin. Playwright Baker takes the audience on a riveting and transcendent journey through the mundane into the profound.

"The first time I read this play, I couldn't put it down. It is such a compelling, revealing, and balanced piece of work. This is a gifted and intentional playwright, who left so much room for discoveries to be made. You'll notice an additional nuance every time you see it." says Director Natasha Parnian. "The actors in the cast are truthful and talented. As a matter of fact, they are fearless- which is required for this play. Dark Horse is very happy to have them as guest artists for this production. We guarantee an introspective experience and some interesting post-show discussion." and "If you want a unique theatre-going experience that doesn't cost you and arm and a leg, give us a try. Our company is constantly expanding the world of the play. We do this through experiential elements. Come check it out."
