The Flick at Playwrights Horizons

Playwright Annie Baker talks about her new play “The Flick,” along with Matthew Maher, who stars in it. “The Flick” is set in a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, where three underpaid employees mop the floors and attend to one of the last 35 millimeter film projectors in the state. Their tiny battles, and not-so-tiny heartbreaks, more gripping than the lackluster, second-run movies on screen, play out in the empty aisles. “The Flick” is playing through April 7 at Playwrights Horizons’ Mainstage Theater.
