SCHULTZ – At the age of 48, Schultz finds himself unhappily alone after his recent divorce from his wife of many years. He works primarily as a carpenter and makes chairs in his spare time.
JAMES – He is 60 years old and is married to Marty. He has an estranged daughter from a previous marriage whom he attempts to contact throughout the play.
MARTY – Marty, 55, is the Co-Executive Director of the community center where the play is set. In addition to teaching drama, she leads classes in other subjects, such as jewelry and pottery. She is married to James. Marty longs to move to New Mexico.
LAUREN – 16, Lauren is the youngest student in Marty’s class.
She is in high school and is figuring out what she wants to do with her life. She is considering becoming a professional actress, so she is disappointed when she realizes the acting class is only going to be theatre games and not scene work.
THERESA – At the age of 35, she’s recently moved to Vermont from New York City after ending a toxic relationship. She is an actress and is also studying acupressure.
ABOUT THE SHOW:
When four lost New Englanders who enroll in Marty’s six-week-long community-center drama class begin to experiment with harmless games, hearts are quietly torn apart, and tiny wars of epic proportions are waged and won. A beautifully crafted diorama, a petri dish in which we see, with hilarious detail and clarity, the antic sadness of a motley quintet.
“Circle Mirror Transformation” is written by Annie Baker and is directed by Angela McLaughlin.
