“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 Magazine
“The Flick draws out nakedly truthful and unadorned acting. This lovingly observed play will sink deep into your consciousness.”— The New York Times
“An almost anti-theatrical experience, The Flick creates a certain almost hypnotic fascination, whose duration, dramaturgy and acting promote a strange cracked intimacy between the protagonists and the spectators.”— David Lefebvre – (Mon)Theatre.qc.ca
About the show
In a run-down movie theatre in central Massachusetts, three underpaid employees mop the floors and attend to one of the last 35mm film projectors in the state. Their tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks play out in the empty aisles, becoming more gripping than the lacklustre, second-run movies on screen. With keen insight and a finely-tuned comic eye, The Flick is a hilarious and heartrending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world.
