New York Premiere: A hilarious and moving story told entirely from the point of view of family and friends, yet performed by Deen himself, DRAW THE CIRCLE compassionately brings to life the often-ignored struggle that a family goes through when their child transitions from one gender to another.

AUDIENCE RESPONSES from PLAYMAKERS REP in North Carolina
“Though I consider myself very open to life lived in any configuration,
I experienced angles I had not understood before. This was a gift.”

“This story is powerful, moving, surprising at every turn–and inhabiting it was for me,
a stretch and a challenge. The best art does that. The details of the story matter.
They matter a lot. They rattle us, as they remind us that every story is unique.
But this is also a universal story, about the search for identity in the deepest sense,
about what it means to be a human being, alive in this world.”
