Annie Baker
Brooklyn, NY
2011 USA Fellow

This award was generously supported by the Collins Family Foundation.

Playwright Annie Baker has had three works produced for the stage. Baker’s first play, Body Awareness, premiered in 2008 and was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for Best Play and an Outer Circle Critics Award. Her 2009 play, Circle Mirror Transformation, won the 2010 Obie Award for Best New American Play and a New York Drama Critics Special Citation Award. She shared these awards with her 2010 play, The Aliens. All three plays take place in a small town in Vermont, and Baker says she is interested “in celebrating the strangeness of everyday life.”
