THE FLICK by Annie Baker
Directed by Stephanie C. Cunningham
June 8 to July 16, 2017
The beauty and sadness in ordinary lives…
A 2014 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, The Flick is a rich and daring feat of hyper-realism that follows three young employees of a dilapidated movie theatre. Small loves and small crimes become epic under Baker’s intensely-focused gaze as the play slowly and quietly explores issues of race, class, sexuality, capitalism, and technology.
“More than most playwrights working today, Ms. Baker really does have an interest in holding the proverbial Shakespearean mirror up to nature to illuminate the way we treat each other and the way we communicate–and fail to communicate.” —The New York Times
