"Annie Baker is one of the best young playwrights working today."--"Paris Review"

"Baker may just have the subtlest way with exposition of anyone writing for the theatre today. . . . There is something distinctly Chekhovian in the way her writing accrues weight and meaning simply through compassionate, truthful observation."--"The New York Times"

"Baker's heartbreaking works of staggering focus have actually rescued realism from the aesthetic scrap heap."--"Time Out New York"

In a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, the tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks of three underpaid employees play out in the empty aisles, becoming more gripping than the lackluster, second-run movies on screen. With keen insight and a finely-tuned comic eye, "The Flick" is a hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world. This comedy, by one of the United States' most-produced and highly regarded young playwrights, premiered Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons in winter of 2013, directed by Sam Gold.

Annie Baker's works include "The Aliens" (Obie Award), "Body Awareness," "Circle Mirror Transformation" (Obie Award), "Nocturama," and a fresh, Off-Broadway-hit adaptation of Chekhov's "Uncle Vanya." Recent honors include a New York Drama Critics Circle Special Citation, a Susan Smith Blackburn Prize nomination, a Time Warner Storytelling Fellowship, a MacDowell Fellowship, and commissions from Center Theater Group and Playwrights Horizons.
