Written by Annie Baker, “The Flick” won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and is described as a thoughtful drama with well-crafted characters, rendering lives rarely seen on the stage.
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 keen insight and a finely tuned comic eye, “The Flick” is a hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world.
**For mature audiences. This production contains strong language and some sexual content.
