Joe Atkinson Directs Play for Evansville Civic Theatre Underground Series
Posted: Friday, February 7, 2020
Evansville Civic Theatre's Underground series will open "Circle Mirror Transformation," by Annie Baker, on Thursday, February 13, at 7:30 p.m. The production, which run four days at Studio 321 (321 N. Congress), is directed by Assistant Professor of Communication Joe Atkinson.
"Circle Mirror Transformation" follows four lost New Englanders who enroll in Marty's six-week-long community-center drama class. When the class begins to experiment with harmless games, hearts are quietly torn apart, and tiny wars of epic proportions are waged and won. The play is a beautifully crafted diorama, a petri dish in which we see, with hilarious detail and clarity, the antic sadness of a motley quintet.
Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. on February 13, 14, and 15, with a 2:00 matinee on Sunday, February 16.
