Undermain Theatre presents The Flick
Undermain Theatre will present the regional premiere of Annie Baker’s The Flick, winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the 2013 OBIE Award for Playwriting and the 2013 New York Critics Circle Award for Best Play.
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.
