Circle Mirror Transformation
by Annie Baker
Winner of the Obie Award for Best New American Play and hailed by critics as “absorbing, unblinking and sharply funny” (The New York Times), CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION follows an unlikely group of five strangers who have signed up for an introduction to acting course where they learn more about themselves than they do about acting. This was touring production part of the "Road Show" program for Ellipse Theatre Community (ETC) performing in Bend, Redmond, Sisters, Sunriver, and Prineville. Special to this production was the collaboration with award-winning pianist and composer, Paula Dreyer, who performed live during each performance. Funding for this production was made possible by a grant from the Deschutes County Coalition, donations, and volunteer support.
