The Vermont Plays - Annie Baker

The Vermont Plays


"Baker may just have the subtlest way with exposition of anyone writing for the theater today... There is something distinctly Chekhovian in the way her writing accrues weight and meaning simply through compassionate, truthful observation." --Charles Isherwood, New York Times

"Baker has a soft spot for the abandoned, the discarded, the hard luck case... her heartbreaking works of staggering focus have actually rescued realism from the aesthetic scrap heap" -- Helen Shaw, Time Out New York

"Baker is a writer whose plays have a quiet, hypnotic charm, a grace and humor. She's able to take ordinary, low-key situations--a small-town acting class, guys wasting time in an alley behind a cafe--and fill them with gentle comedy, generosity of spirit and an eye (and ear) for the foibles that make us all so hopelessly human." --Village Voice

The debut play collection of Annie Baker includes The Aliens an exploration of friendship and music in the lives of three misfits behind a coffee shop; Circle Mirror Transformation a meditation on life within the rhythms of an adult drama class; Nocturama A dark comedy in which a grown son returns home to live with his mother and stepfather; and Body Awareness a close look at a nontraditional family dealing with an unexpected guest.

Annie Baker's other plays include The Flick and an adaptation of Uncle Vanya. She won an Obie Award for Best New American Play for The Aliens and Circle Mirror Transformation. She is a 2011 United States Artists Fellow and a resident playwright at the Signature Theatre.
