Summary
"Winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama "Funny, heartbreaking, sly, and unblinking. The Flick may be the best argument anyone has yet made for the continued necessity, and profound uniqueness, of theater."-New York "Hilarious and ineffably touching. Ms. Baker's peerless aptitude for exploring how people grope their way toward a sense of equanimity, even as they learn to accept disappointment, is among the things that make her such a gifted writer. this lovingly observed play will sink deep into your consciousness."-The New York Times "This hypnotic, heartbreaking micro-epic about movies and moving on is irreducibly theatrical."-Time Out New York In a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, the tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks of three underpaid employees 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. This 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. The Flick was awarded the coveted 2013 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Annie Baker's works include The Aliens (Obie Award), Body Awareness, Circle Mirror Transformation (Obie Award), Nocturama, and a fresh, Off-Broadway-hit adaptation of Anton Chekhov's Uncle Vanya. Her work has been produced at more than a hundred theaters in the U.S. and in more than a dozen countries internationally. Recent honors include a Guggenheim Fellowship, Steinberg Playwright Award and New York Drama Critics Circle Award. She is a resident playwright at the Signature Theatre"--
