When newlyweds Paul and Corie set up house in a tiny fifth-floor apartment in Greenwich Village, they have to find room for leaking skylights, nosy neighbors, interfering in-laws, and, oh yes, love. The inspiration for many modern romantic comedies, Neil Simon’s Barefoot in the Park brims with zippy one-liners and snappy comebacks. It’s the perfect Summer Fling for any and all true romantics.

A sharply funny new play by emerging playwright Annie Baker, Circle Mirror Transformation follows five people through a summer of “creative drama” in their small town’s adult acting class. Led by their bohemian acting coach, the five experiment with harmless theatre games that unexpectedly lead to poignant discoveries about themselves and each other. At turns surprisingly funny and subtly insightful, this revealing play reminds us why theatre is the most human of all arts.

It’s a classic tale: ten seemingly unrelated strangers gather at an isolated manor house, and as the truth behind their gathering starts to come out, the bodies start to pile up in the library. Was it the butler? The black sheep nephew? The uninvited guest? Can anyone figure out what is “afoot” before it’s too late? With its creative homicide and catchy tunes, Something’s Afoot is sure to entertain audiences in search of a good mystery and a good laugh.
