Marty, a free-spirited acting teacher, leads a six-week Adult Creative Drama class at a small-town community center. She takes her small group of students through a series of innocuous — sometimes hilarious — exercises in which they act like trees and a variety of inanimate objects. Then they act like one another and tell their life stories. As the class progresses through increasingly deep and self-revelatory exercises, their inner lives, painful pasts, buried truths, and romantic longings are exposed. What emerges is anything but play acting! In illuminating the interior worlds and interactions of the participants, Circle Mirror Transformation forges a path of self-discovery, healing and hope.
