Summary

"An original voice, appealing quirkiness, and an astute sense of what makes people tick."-- Daily News(New York) "There is something distinctly Chekhovian in the way her writing accrues weight and meaning simply through compassionate, truthful observation."-- The New York Times With her quartet of plays set in small-town Vermont, twenty-nine-year-old Annie Baker is making a big impact on the American theater. Circle Mirror Transformation, which takes place in a summer acting class and alternates between theater exercises and moments between classmates, shares the 2010 OBIE Award for Best Play with The Aliens, Baker's "gentle and extraordinarily beautiful new play" ( The New York Times) that explores weighty topics of love and death through the easy banter of the slackers behind the local coffee shop. Also included in The Vermont Playsis Body Awareness, set during Body Awareness Week at the local college, and Nocturama, in which a twenty-six-year-old Brooklynite returns to live with his mom and video game obsessed stepfather. Annie Baker's plays include Body Awareness, Circle Mirror Transformation, The Aliens, The End of the Middle Ages, and Nocturama. Her honors include a New York Drama Critics Circle Special Citation, a Susan Smith Blackburn Prize nomination, and a Time Warner Storytelling Fellowship.
