What It’s AboutIn a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, three underpaid employees (Georgia Mallory Guy, Brian Shea, and Thomas Morgan) clean the theater between screenings 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 far 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. Bay area theatergoers may recall Baker’s work from the recent critically-acclaimed production of The Aliens at Stageworks Theater, directed by Jobsite Producing Artistic Director David M. Jenkins.
Why It’s For You
Remember the first time you got up the courage to tell someone you loved them? Can you still remember that one person you never told? Or the first time you stood up for a belief? The Flick portrays a stage of life everyone has been through – or are in right now. A time of finding your identity and purpose, figuring out your future, and experiencing setbacks and disappointments. A time of searching for a better life without quite knowing at times how to achieve success or how to overcome failure.
