Synopsis: Set in Shirley, Vermont, this 2009 comic drama by Annie Baker, won the Obie award for Best New American Play. Emotionally affecting and funny, the play reveals as much in silence and body language as it does in dialogue. Through the fumbling explorations of her characters, Baker holds a mirror to the audience, gently revealing beauty and pain in the tiny absurdities inherent to the study of drama, and leaving us with the question “what makes life “real?’” When the drama class experiments with seemingly harmless games, hearts are quietly torn apart, and tiny wars of epic proportions are waged and won.
