Description: "Annie Baker is one of the best young playwrights working today."Paris Review"Baker may just have the subtlest way with exposition of anyone writing for the theatre today. . . . There is something distinctly Chekhovian in the way her writing accrues weight and meaning simply through compassionate, truthful observation."The New York Times"Baker's heartbreaking works of staggering focus have actually rescued realism from the aesthetic scrap heap."Time Out New YorkIn a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, the tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks of three underpaid employees play out in the empty aisles, becoming 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. This comedy, by one of the United States' most-produced and highly regarded young playwrights, premiered Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons in winter of 2013, directed by Sam Gold.Annie Baker's works include The Aliens (Obie Award), Body Awareness, Circle Mirror Transformation (Obie Award), Nocturama, and a fresh, Off-Broadway-hit adaptation of Chekhov's Uncle Vanya. Recent honors include a New York Drama Critics Circle Special Citation, a Susan Smith Blackburn Prize nomination, a Time Warner Storytelling Fellowship, a MacDowell Fellowship, and commissions from Center Theater Group and Playwrights Horizons.
