The Shirley, VT Plays Festival: The Plays

Go behind the scenes of the Shirley, VT Plays Festival with Huntington Artistic Director Peter DuBois, Circle Mirror Transformation director Melia Bensussen, Body Awareness director Paul Daigneault, and The Aliens director Shawn LaCount as they share their thoughts on the plays that make up the festival, as well their own experiences working on this landmark collaboration.

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.
