The Flick

by Annie Baker

The Toronto Premiere of ANNIE BAKER’s Pulitzer Prize-Winning Masterpiece
An Outside the March and Crow’s Theatre Production

One of the best plays of the last 25 years” – The New York Times


Empire Records meets Waiting For Godot. In The Flick, three ushers navigate life making $8.25/hour, as they attend to the last 35mm film projector in town. Written by Annie Baker (The AliensJohn), one of the most exciting voices in contemporary theatre, and hailed by The Guardian as “a love letter to the theatre”, The Flick is a hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world.

After Outside the March’s explosive, Dora Award-winning production of Jerusalem at Streetcar Crowsnest, Outside the March and Crow’s Theatre join forces to transform the theatre and lobby into The Flick Cinema, for a must-see immersive event.
