Try the BeeHive afterwards. Right next door. Great food. Live music. Cast & crew may show up.

Description

Written by Annie Baker

Directed by Melia Bensussen

This fall, three Boston theatre companies will team up to produce breakout writer Annie Baker’s first three plays — Circle Mirror Transformation, produced by the Huntington Theatre Company (October 15 — November 14), Body Awareness, produced by SpeakEasy Stage Company (October 22 — November 20), and The Aliens, produced by Company One (October 22 — November 20). All set in the fictional town of Shirley, VT, the plays will run together in the first-ever festival dedicated to the work of this wryly observant young writer. The plays present a special opportunity to examine the rich and varied lives of a small town filled with humor, good intentions, unintended consequences, and accidental beauty.
