American Pie in Celluloid Form

The FlickThe Flick by Annie Baker

A play that reads like a novel. The Flick by Annie Baker is a nice slice of Americana about the last 35mm movie theatre in Massachusetts going digital. The play centres around Sam, Avery, and Rose, who are damaged in their ways. The dialogue and the characters are believable and the set (as described in the stage notes) has a personality of its own. The play is character study about genuine people with simple ambitions who are trying to figure out who they are and their place in the world.
