Welcome to the first episode of Pour Me Another,
a web series created by TDF and Samuel French that talks about theatre like we do at the bar.
To read a companion essay about The Flick,
the play discussed in the video, just go here
. To lean how the star of the Off Broadway production creates his complicated character, go here
Our first conversation features Mark Blankenship (editor of TDF Stages
) and Ben Coleman (literary supervisor at Samuel French). Over glasses of fine pink wine, the gents discuss Annie Baker's Pulitzer Prize-winning drama The Flick.
What makes the play tick? Why does it stick in the brain? What does it have to say about being a wage-earning American in 2015? This episode digs into those questions... and ends with a lively movie trivia game.
