Bartlett Theater's Production of Annie Baker's THE FLICK
Live theater in a movie theater about people who work in a movie theater?!?!?!
Yes, it's true!
Bartlett Theater announces that rehearsals are underway for Annie Bakers Pulitzer Prize winning play THE FLICK. Directed by Founding Artistic Director Jonathan Brady, THE FLICK opens Friday, November 2nd at The Northgate Stadium 10 Cinema. With the ever increasing need for performance spaces in Durham, like other local companies, Bartlett is seeking out creative alternatives. This production marks Bartlett Theaters first collaboration with Northgate Mall; Bartlett will be the first theater company to stage a play using Northgate as the venue.
The Flick takes place in 2012, in a run-down, single- screen movie theater in central Massachusetts. Three underpaid employees mop the floors, scrape gum off the seats, and attend to one of the last 35-millimeter film projectors in the state. Though their lives are seemingly mundane and ordinary--- their struggles and aspirations are anything but. In the dingy aisles of the theater, underneath the amusing, idle workplace banter, these characters are fighting for the noblest of pursuits: authentic connection in a world that is passing them by. Audiences will find themselves transported into these pursuits by playwright Annie Bakers uncanny ability to equally wield silence and idiomatic dialogue.
