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.
