In small town in New England, Marty, an acting teacher, holds an 'Adult Creative Drama' class at the local community centre. The people who sign up for the class are Schultz, a recently divorced carpenter; Lauren, a reserved high school junior; Teresa, a former actress; and Marty's husband James. Marty takes the students through various acting and dramatic exercises; they act like trees, beds and baseball gloves. In one exercise, they act as one another and tell their life stories. As a possible romance begins, each of the group slowly reveal themselves.

This performance is recommended for audiences aged 15+

This amateur production of Circle Mirror Transformation is presented by an arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd.
