Circle Mirror Transformation
By Annie Baker
A ParksideSTUDIO production
The Rita, Main Stage Theatre
Feb 18 at 7 pm
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.

Black Box Theatre
Mar 4 at 7 pm
Inspired by the true events surrounding the 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch’s God of Vengeance, a flashpoint in Jewish and queer theatrical history, Indecent follows the history of the play itself and the artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it.
She Kills Monsters
By Qui Nguyen
Main Stage Theatre
April 29 at 7 pm
She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she finds herself catapulted into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and ’90s pop culture, acclaimed playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.
