The Aux Dog Theatre Nob Hill is pleased to present the Southwest Premiere of Annie Baker’s play The Flick, directed by Justin Golding.
The Flick opens March 22 and runs through April 14. All opening weekend tickets are $10.
Curtain is 8:00pm for Friday and Saturday shows. Sunday matinees are at 2:00pm.
Winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2013 Obie Award Playwriting, The Flick is set in an ailing cinema in Massachusetts, and follows three underpaid movie ushers, Avery, Sam and Rose (who also runs the film projector).
The staging reverses the traditional theatrical polarities: the audience will be seated on the Aux Dog stage and the action will take place in the house of the theatre.
A comedy of the mundane, it is a play full of almost Chekhovian yearning and disappointment. It also plays cleverly with the idea that a film takes us completely out of ourselves and raises questions about reproduction and authenticity and the nature of the live and lived experiences.
The Flick features: Dachary Vann as Avery, Brandon Price McDonald as Sam, Katherine Jackson as Rose and Safnon Farmer as Skylar/The Dreaming Man.
Appropriate for Ages: 16 and above
