Synopsis

Three underpaid employees sweep up stale popcorn in a run-down movie house called The Flick, one of the last theaters in Massachusetts still projecting 35mm films. For Avery, this isn't a dead-end job; it's a way to get closer to the art form he loves. Passionate debates about cinema lead to friendship of sorts with co-workers Sam and Rose. But will their tentative bond survive as they reveal what they actually need from each other? Annie Baker received the Pulitzer Prize for this hilarious and heartfelt cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world.

"Richly written and just as richly acted.... OCT's production of The Flick is so good you'll think you were magically transported to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival."
The Register-Guard

"Exquisitely written... carries the force of revelation, no more or no less than classic American dramas by grand masters such as Tennessee Williams and Sam Shepard."

“Funny, heartbreaking, sly, and unblinking. The Flick may be the best argument anyone has yet made for the continued necessity, and profound uniqueness, of theatre.”
New York Magazine

“FOUR STARS. A hypnotic, heartbreaking, micro-epic about movies and moving on. Irreducibly Theatrical.”
Time Out New York

"CRITIC’S PICK. Hilarious and touching . . . Annie Baker, one of the freshest and most talented dramatists to emerge Off Broadway in the past decade, writes with tenderness and keen insight. Her writing is a great blessing to performers: The Flick draws out nakedly truthful and unadorned acting. This lovingly observed play will sink deep into your consciousness."
– The New York Times
