Previewing the 2014-2015 Staged Reading Series: "Circle Mirror Transformation," Sept. 2, 2014


We're previewing the 2014-2015 season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette this week. First we'll look at the Staged Reading series.

The first staged reading in the 2014-2015 season will be Circle Mirror Transformation by Annie Baker. It is a full-length comedy/drama with a cast of two men and three women.

When four lost New Englanders who enroll in Marty's six-week-long community-center drama class begin to experiment with harmless games, hearts are quietly torn apart, and tiny wars of epic proportions are waged and won. A beautifully crafted diorama, a petri dish in which we see, with hilarious detail and clarity, the antic sadness of a motley quintet.

The staged reading will be Tuesday, Sept. 2 at 7:30 p.m. in the historic Monon Depot Theatre at 320 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette – the corner of 5th Street and North Street.

Staged readings are Pay What You Can events. Tickets are available the night of the reading at the box office, and a question-and-answer session between the audience, cast and director immediately follow each performance. For more information, call 765-423-7529.

The mission of Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette is to enhance the artistic and cultural environment of Greater Lafayette through theatrical productions and educational opportunities.
