“The Circle Table” explores vignettes threading characters and relationships via FaceTime calls and asks: how does digital communication hamper or enhance love, family, depression, self-exploration and fulfillment?. A formerly dorky actor reconnects with a high school crush. A friend group falters when their pal goes to a different college. That pal is clinically depressed. An aspiring fashion blogger tries not to bum out her mother. A temporarily long-distance couple flubs FaceTime sex.

"Watching this show was like watching my kids and grandkids, all of whom have grown up and are growing up in a digital age where so much communication is carried out on Facebook, Facetime and Instagram. The series of vignettes introduced us to a group of amazing characters who had grown up together but gone on different paths. There is lots of comedy and dramedy, and we bet you can find at least one of these characters to relate to. Hats off to Flat Tire Theatre for a brilliant production."

"A smart ensemble of talented young actors bring their focus to love in the social media age. Presented in a series of scenes, the show cycles through the trials of young people finding their way in the world. The cast was top notch, with delightful subtle and nuanced performances, none better than the outstanding Ali Pinkerton. But their were no weak links. The strength of the this piece is the well-directed acting company."

"What I liked The cast is amazing which I’ve come to expect from Flat Tire. The performances were acted out just right, no melodrama or corniness. It’s like a well balanced coffee mocha. What I didn't like I would have like to spend more time with the mother character. The play was somehow anticlimactic, it left me wanting more. My overall impression A charming coming of age drama that deals with relationships that intertwine told through cell phone interaction."
