‘Body Awareness’ next at Circle Players



Circle Players will present “Body Awareness,” a 2009 Drama Desk award-winning play written by Annie Baker.

It’s “Body Awareness Week” on a Vermont college campus and the organizer, Phyllis, and her partner, Joyce, are hosting one of the guest artists, Frank, in their home. Frank is a photographer famous for his portraits of female nudes. His presence in the home and his chosen subject create tension from the start. Phyllis is furious with his art, but Joyce is intrigued and considers posing for him. As Joyce and Phyllis bicker, Joyce’s young adult son, Jared, who may or may not have Asperger’s Disorder, struggles to develop relationships with young women, with heartbreaking results.

The play will be directed by Ed Faver of Roselle, and produced by Elyse Halloran of Somerset. Stage manager is Stephanie Scuccimarri of Piscataway.

Appearing in the cast are Kate Soriano, Jersey City; Chris DeBono, Madison; Heidi Hart, Maplewood; and Charles Deitz, Tinton Falls.

Performances run 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, Jan. 16-31, with one 3 p.m. matinee on Sunday, Feb. 1.

The audience is invited to a wine and cheese reception in the lobby following the opening night performance.

The theater is located at 416 Victoria Ave., Piscataway. Because of the unique layout of the theater, latecomers cannot be seated once the performance has started. Please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes before curtain.
