Circles serves up an incendiary tango between the anima and animus. In the play, a woman waits for her lover in the apartment that they share. When he returns, their lives change forever, leading them to play that all-too-familiar game between men and women. In the piece, they volley back and forth in the ultimate match, grappling with the unsolvable puzzle of life’s most complex challenge: Love.
Will the pair last the night? Can passion sustain their partnership? Or will one text message cause their universe to collapse? Circles flirts with the fundamental mysteries of human connection. It explores what it is to be understood and to understand. It asks: Are men and women fundamentally different? And: Can we truly find common ground with another?
