Circle Mirror Transformation, winner of the 2010 Obie Award for Best New American Play, upholds Immediate Theatre Project’s mission to deliver thought-provoking, emotionally stirring theatrical experiences. Rather than steering the production’s plot with gaudy explosions, overdone dance routines, and shootouts with evil tennis-ball machines, playwright Annie Baker instead hems audiences into the lives of five characters using heartfelt dialogue and scenes driven by sentimental values. Theatergoers connect with the cast of unlikely cohorts who, in the middle of a community drama class, unmask themselves to reveal the funny, painful, and joyous frameworks of their lives. Each presentation of Circle Mirror Transformation pulls heartstrings within North Carolina Stage Company’s theater, where ongoing renovations continue to improve outings by coating walls with fresh paint and oiling the limbs of squeaky stagehands.
