Studio 550, Manchester, NH

“Do you ever wonder... how many times your life is gonna totally change and then, like, start all over again?”

What do a flirty former actress, a pouty 16-year-old, a hippie husband and a divorced carpenter have in common? Very little, or at least that’s what they think until they take a six week community acting class. In this hilarious and touching play we catch glimpses of the poignant drama that animates ordinary lives. Called an “absorbing, unblinking and sharply funny play” by the New York Times, Circle Mirror Transformation celebrates the subtle and surprising power of creativity.

Circle Mirror Transformation premiered in New York at Playwrights Horizons, won the 2010 Obie Award for Best New American Play and was voted one of the top ten plays of 2009 by The New York Times, Time Out New York, and The New Yorker.

Studio 550theatre KAPOW is pleased to partner with Manchester's Studio 550 Art Center on this project.
