About the Play:

The Circle is a full-length comedic drama by Geoffrey Simon Brown. It's a high-school garage party: there's the genius, the drug dealer, the runaway, the kid with ADHD, and the son of a priest. Everyone's just trying to fit in. The Circle is an explosive SOS from an orphaned generation desperately looking for a place to belong. Particularly suitable for schools and play contests.

The Circle is a hard-hitting, unsettling play about youth and belonging set in a high-school garage party. Amanda is a genius. Ily is a dropout who deals drugs. Kit is a runaway. Mutt is a mess. Will is a shit disturber. Daniel doesn't know what he's doing there. Everyone's a bit too drunk and a bit too stoned and a bit uncomfortable in their own skin. Youth is a dangerous time. How far will things stretch without breaking? It's an explosive combination, but it's better than being alone on a Friday night in suburbia. This remarkable debut by Geoffrey Simon Brown is about youthful immortality, violence and the creation of a family.

The Circle was developed at The National Theatre School of Canada where it was presented by the graduating class of 2014. It premiered in 2015 at the Martha Cohen Theatre during Alberta Theatre Projects National playRites Festival of New Plays in Calgary. Since then the play has been produced at professional theatres across Canada and performed in high school and college theatre productions as a showcase of student talent.
