The Flick by Annie Baker
May 31 > June 11, 2023
at the Centaur Theatre, 453 Saint Francois Xavier St, Montreal
Persephone Productions is proud to present their upcoming production: the Quebec English-language premiere of Annie Baker's Pulitzer Prize-winning play The Flick, May 31 -June 11 at the Centaur Theatre.
In a run-down movie theatre in central Massachusetts, three underpaid employees mop the floors and attend to one of the last 35mm film projectors in the state. Their tiny battles and not-so tiny heartbreaks play out in the empty aisles, becoming more gripping than the 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.
“[Annie Baker’s] writing is a great blessing to performers: The Flick draws out nakedly truthful and unadorned acting.” -New York Times
“Funny, heartbreaking, sly and unblinking, The Flick may be the best argument anyone has yet made for the continued necessity, and profound uniqueness, of theatre” -New York Magazine
