Queensland Theatre presents a Red Stitch Actors Theatre production
Spilled popcorn. Unspoken passions. Dusty projectors. Three unsung, underappreciated employees banter about life, love and longing.
On a break from college, young film buff Avery takes a minimum-wage job as an usher at crumbling Massachusetts movie palace, The Flick. His thirty-something colleague Sam seems resigned to a dead-end life of sweeping up stale popcorn and his unrequited love for Rose, the achingly cool, free-spirited projectionist.
As one late night blurs into another, and this trio of painfully ordinary people bond over movie trivia, low-level embezzling and shared ennui, the play evolves into a deeply moving, funny and delicate examination of the millions of tiny dramas that make up everyday life.
The Flick, winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama has been the talk of New York and London. This year, Queensland Theatre breathes new life into the hit production by Melbourne ensemble Red Stitch, directed by the acclaimed Nadia Tass (Disgraced).
