The Flick is the newest play by Annie Baker, whose frequent collaborator, Sam Gold, directs the production now running at Playwrights Horizons.

Baker and Gold have worked together on her previous plays The Aliens and Circle Mirror Transformation, as well as Baker’s translation of Uncle Vanya. As she did in The Aliens, Baker again looks at what might at first appear to be small moments in small-town lives of young, underpaid, and perhaps unmotivated workers in New England. New York Times theater critic Charles Isherwood has liked Baker’s previous work. He tells us if her track record continues.
