THE FLICK by Annie Baker
WINNER! 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama
"CRITICS 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
"Funny, heartbreaking, sly, and unblinking. THE FLICK may be the best argument anyone has yet made for the continued necessity, and profound uniqueness, of theater."
New York Magazine

with Tsiambwom M. Akuchu, Corey M. Gagne,
Johnny Speckman and Casey Turner
Tsiambwom M. Akuchu (Everyman, UM Theatre & Dance), Corey M. Gagne (Equivocation, DRC), Johnny Speckman (The Watson Intelligence, DRC) and Casey Turner (Venus in Fur, DRC). In a movie theater near Worcester, MA (called The Flick) -- one of the few that hasn't yet switched to digital film -- three employees work dreary jobs for just above minimum wage: selling tickets, cleaning up after patrons, and running the projector. The economy is depressed and so are they, and yet over the course of this Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, Sam, Rose, and Avery show themselves to be complex, feeling people with unrealized ambitions to become more than their dreary surroundings. Annie Baker's drama unfolds in unhurried naturalistic scenes, and her astonishingly well observed and subtle characterizations suggest a Chekhovian ability to forge compelling drama from the littleness of everyday life
