theflickHickory – The Hickory Community Theatre’s production of the dramatic comedy, “The Flick,” about a trio of millennials who work at a run-down movie theatre opens this Friday, November 4th in the Firemen’s Kitchen.

In Annie Baker’s Pulitzer Prize winning play, Sam, Avery and Rose are three members of the “millennial” generation learning to cope with adulthood as they work to survive on a meager income from their jobs at a run-down movie theatre. As they sweep up spilled popcorn and mop the sticky floors the trio make witty and wry observations about movie goers, debate films and play games of “six degrees of separation.” The action is a potent mix of the hilarious and the heartfelt.

Performances of “The Flick” are November 4th through 20th in the Firemen’s Kitchen at Hickory Community Theatre. Tickets are $16 and go on sale October 10th. Call 828-327-3855 or click hickorytheatre.org. The play is Rated R for strong adult language and situations.
