The Flick
By: 
Annie Baker

 

Directed by Sam Gold
February 15, 2013 – April 07, 2013
Mainstage Theater, Playwrights Horizon, New York, NY

 

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.
