There is something distinctly Chekhovian in the way her writing accrues weight and meaning simply through compassionate, truthful observation.
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. 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.
