The Flick

Annie Baker

Congratulations to Annie Baker!

WINNER OF THE 2014 PULITZER PRIZE FOR DRAMA

The most recent work by the Obie Award-winning author of Circle Mirror Transformation and The Aliens, The Flick takes place in a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, where the tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks of three underpaid employees play out in the empty aisles. With keen insight and a finely-tuned comic eye, The Flick is a hilarious and heartrending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world.

The comedy, by one of the United States’ most-produced and highly regarded young playwrights, premiered Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons in winter of 2013, directed by Sam Gold, and will be remounted Off-Broadway at the Barrow Street Theater in the near future.

"Hilarious and ineffably touching. . . . This lovingly observed play will sink deep into your consciousness." —The New York Times
