A dramatic comedy by Annie Baker
Directed by Craig Joseph
In a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, three underpaid employees mop the floors and attend to one of the last 35 millimeter film projectors in the state. Their tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks play out in the empty aisles, becoming more gripping than the lackluster, second-run movies on screen. With a keen insight and finely-tuned comic eye, The Flick is a hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world.
The Flick is recommended for adults due to language and content.
The Flick was commissioned by Playwrights Horizon in New York City, where it received its world premiere on March 12, 2013. Following its limited engagement there, the production transferred to the off-Broadway Barrow Street Theatre, where it played from May 7, 2015, to Jan. 10, 2016.
Among its many honors, The Flick won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the 2013 OBIE Award for Playwriting and the 2013 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize. The Flick was also a 2013 Drama Desk Award nominee for Outstanding Play, a 2013 Lucille Lortel Award nominee for Outstanding Play and was a finalist for the 2013 New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Play.
The Flick is presented through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. The videotaping or other video or audio recording of this production is strictly prohibited.
