The Flick by Annie Baker
“It’s like: aren’t you curious what’s gonna like happen to you? In like the future? I’m just like so curious about my future.”
Directed by Blake Hackler
January 10 – 31, 2015 at Undermain Theatre
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 big heartbreaks play out in the empty aisles, becoming more gripping than the 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.
