Inside a ramshackle Massachusetts movie theater, a trio of underpaid, film-loving employees becomes involved in a comic drama of love and friendship amidst the sweeping of aisles and attempts to keep an ancient 35mm film projector running. Times are changing, and if their indie movie house doesn't make the transition to digital projection, its days are likely numbered. As Sam, Avery and Rose navigate lives as sticky as the cinema floor, they experience heartbreaks and comedic conflicts as intriguing as any on the silver screen. Hailed by The New York Times as "wondrous, hilarious ... a play to be treasured," The Flick, written by Obie Award winner Annie Baker (Circle Mirror Transformation, Body Awareness), won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Don't miss this extraordinary dramatic comedy at Chicago's Steppenwolf Upstairs Theatre.
Running time is three hours and 10 minutes, including one intermission.
