In association with Red Stitch Actors Theatre, MIFF presents the Australian premiere season of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize-winning play The Flick.
Sam, Rose and Avery are the underpaid employees of one of the last remaining film projector cinemas in Massachusetts. They bicker, laugh and dream their way through shifts in the empty aisles. New kid Avery has an encyclopaedic obsession with film, and Sam has an unrequited obsession with Rose. Rose does what Rose wants to do.
With keen insight and a finely tuned comic eye, Annie Baker examines hidden corners of our existence, revealing the gems of truth that reside therein. And with Nadia Tass (Matching Jack, MIFF 10; The Big Steal, MIFF 90) directing, this strictly limited Australian premiere season will be one not to miss.
“Funny, heartbreaking ... may be the best argument anyone has yet made for the continued necessity, and profound uniqueness, of theatre.” – New York Magazine
