The Shirley, VT Plays Festival: The Festival

Huntington Artistic Director Peter DuBois, Circle Mirror Transformation director Melia Bensussen, SpeakEasy Stage Company Artistic Director Paul Daigneault, and Company One Artistic Director Shawn LaCount take you behind the scenes of the Shirley, VT Plays Festival and explore this unique event.

This fall, three Boston theatre companies will team up to produce breakout writer Annie Baker's first three plays — CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION, produced by the Huntington Theatre Company (October 15 — November 14), BODY AWARENESS, produced by SpeakEasy Stage Company (October 22 — November 20), and THE ALIENS, produced by Company One (October 22 — November 20). All set in the fictional town of Shirley, VT, the plays will run together in the first-ever festival dedicated to the work of this wryly observant young writer. This festival presents a special opportunity to examine the rich and varied lives of a small town filled with humor, good intentions, unintended consequences, and accidental beauty. Audiences will experience three miniature portraits of Shirley, VT, a town not found on any map.
