‘The Flick’ opens at Pier One Friday

Annie Baker’s drama, “The Flick,” opens at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Pier One Theatre, with performances also at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and Aug. 20-23. Tickets are $15 with discounts, on sale at the door or the Homer Bookstore. 

Written by Annie Baker and directed by Marc Oliver, “The Flick” opened in 2014 and won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for drama. In one of the last 35mm projector movie houses in Massachusetts, the play follows three underpaid employees. Jesse Green of New York magazine called “The Flick” “the best argument yet made for the continued necessity and profound uniqueness of theater.”

Also appearing in the play, Oliver is joined by Johnny Hamilton and Kate Spence. It’s also Oliver’s last show of the season before he leaves at the end of the summer for New York and a new job.
