2014 PULITZER PRIZE WINNER FOR DRAMA
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.
"Annie Baker's exquisite play, acted by a perfect cast, won my heart. One of the freshest and most talented dramatists to emerge in the past decade."
- Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
"The most spellbinding theater this year. 'The Flick' may be the best argument anyone has yet made for the continued necessity and profound uniqueness of the theater."
- Jesse Green, New York Magazine
