Winner: 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, 2013 Obie Award for Playwriting, 2013 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play, 2013 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Play, 2013 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.
In a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, three underpaid employees mop the floors and attend to one of the last 35-millimeter film projectors in the state. Their tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks 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, Annie Baker's The Flick is a hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world.

Directed by Summer Bohnenkamp, who last helmed Jobsite’s critically-lauded and award-winning production of Time Stands Still. Bay area theatergoers may recall Baker’s work from the recent production of The Aliens at Stageworks Theater, directed by Jobsite Producing Artistic Director David M. Jenkins.
