The Flick

Written by Annie Baker
Directed by Lucy Gamades

November 9-11
The Student Theater at Agganis Area

In a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, three deadbeat employees tend to one of the last 35mm projectors in the state. The three have a reluctant friendship, but often take out their inner struggles on each other. Sam is a fully-grown man with no prospects in life, Rose knows she is a stereotype of herself, and Avery has a turbulent past. They learn more about each other as they sweep, mop, and take care of the old place, only to reach a crisis point when they learn the little theater may be turned into a multiplex. They deal with the mundanity of their job in funny, sad, and unexpectedly poignant ways.
