My friend Stephanie and I went to the BCA on a Saturday and saw all three Shirley VT plays. Haven’t heard of them? You will. If not them, you will know about the talented playwright, Annie Baker. All three plays take place in the fictional town of Shirley VT, but Ms. Baker and her voice are the thread that weaves them together.
I liked them (as you will see in the video), but more than that, I was grateful for them. Because they are plays. Not screen plays on stage. They are theatrical, contained within their world and helping you explore your world through them.
CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION closes Sunday. BODY AWARENESS and ALIENS close on the 21st. If you live here, don’t miss them. Ben Brantley didn’t.
