Jobsite Theater kicks off its 2017-18 season on Friday, Sept. 1 with Annie Baker’s 2014 Pulitzer Prize-winning play The Flick.
The production is set in a run-down movie palace in Worcester, Massachusetts and follows three underpaid movie ushers, Avery, Sam and Rose as they mop the floors and tend to one of the last 35-millimeter film projectors in the state. Their personal battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks play out in the empty aisles, becoming far more gripping than the dull, second-run movies on the screen. Audiences say, “The Flick is a hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world.”
The show stars area favorites Georgia Malory Guy, Thomas Morgan, Brian Shea and is directed by Summer Bohnenkamp.
The Flick premiered at Playwrights Horizons in March 2013 and, in addition to winning the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the production won its author a 2013 Obie Award for Playwriting. Tampa 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.
