The Nevada Conservatory Theatre (NCT) opens Annie Baker's The Flick at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1, in the Black Box Theatre. Performances run through Nov. 10. Douglas Hill directs.
Set in a doomed movie theater in central Massachusetts, home of one of the last 35mm film projectors in the state, three underpaid employees clean the floors and connect with each other. Through the drama of their individual conflicts and personal tragedies, Baker illuminates the poetry of the everyday world. This heartbreaking and hilarious play asks questions about who we are in our modern, fast-paced world. As the character of Avery wonders: “Who is myself? What is real?” The Flick is the winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize in Drama.
The cast includes Trenton Carson as Avery, Lauren Tauber as Rose, Tom Ford as Sam, and Gavin Robertson as Skyler/The Dreaming Man.
The production and design team includes scenic designer Roy Mendez, lighting designer Ian La Fountain, sound designer Santiago Sanchez, costume designer Katie Dennis, technical director Ryan Pope, and production stage manager M. Sohaa Smith.
