The Flick Coming to The Alexis and Jim Pugh Theater
Gen Y Productions presents the Florida premiere of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play The Flick, written by Annie Baker. The Flick will play at the Alexis and Jim Pugh Theater at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts June 19 through July 12.
Set in a rundown movie theater in central Massachusetts, The Flick tells the story of three underpaid employees who 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, The Flick is a hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world.
