East Falls’ historic Old Academy Players continues celebrating its 95th season by presenting the Obie Award winning CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION, the hilarious yet subtly profound comedy, written by American playwright Annie Baker & directed by Loretta Lucy Miller. It is produced by Nancy Frick & Stage Managed by Janine Lieberman.
Set in Vermont four New Englanders take a six-week creative drama class. Playing nonsensical theatrical games, the students and teacher grow and develop in ways that everyday conversation cannot express. The diorama shows that much of what is conveyed is not spoken, but hilarious and subtle body language, facial expression, and the eyes, reflect the course of enlightenment and understanding.
The stellar cast includes: Jennifer Shorstein as Theresa, Joseph Tranchitella as James, Maya Knell as Lauren, Sarah Labov as Marty, & T.J. Doyle as Schultz.
Old Academy Players has featured the acting debuts of both Grace Kelly & Robert Prosky.
