Beijan Sheibani directs the first major production of Circle Mirror Transformation in five years at HOME in March. Written by Pulitzer prize winner Annie Baker, the play is set in Vermont where five strangers come together for a creative drama class for adults. As the unlikely fivesome take part in six weeks of exercises and games, their lives become entwined and changed in heartbreaking and humorous ways. Described as a ‘Chekhov of the 21st century’ Baker’s play focuses on the connections between individuals and the way their interactions relate to each other. Featuring a cast of distinguished UK actors, as well as a director gaining increasing plaudits, this is a well fitting and important production in a season including People, Places, and Things and Uncle Vanya.
