In a community center acting class, real-life drama hides beneath imaginative—and sometimes awkward—theatre games.

January 24 – February 12, 2017

In her creative drama class at the local community center, middle-aged bohemian Marty coaches an unlikely assortment of small-town Vermonters: a recently divorced carpenter, a high school junior, a former actress, and Marty’s own husband. As they tackle Marty’s imaginative, improvisational, and sometimes awkward theatre games, their real lives gradually infiltrate the classroom—inspiring transformations both personal and profound. Annie Baker’s enormously popular comedy is a beautifully crafted, tender portrait of the tiny leaps of faith and creativity that spark unexpected insight.
