If you're familiar with Monty Python movies and television episodes, you know that the sketches and plots are crazy and most of the characters are nuts. So you must act accordingly. Note, too, that most actors, by design and not because we're cheap (which we are) play multiple roles. All the more fun. Of course, everybody plays it straight.

Aux Dog Theatre Nob Hill
The Flick Winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama In a rundown movie theatre, 3 underpaid employees sweep up popcorn in the empty aisles and tend to one of the last 35 mm projectors in the state. With keen insight and a ceaseless attention to detail, The Flick pays tribute to the power of movies and paints a heartbreaking portrait of 3 characters and their working lives. This comedy by one of the country's most produced and highly regarded young playwrights was awarded the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, and an Obie Award for Playwrighting and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Runs March 15 to April 7
Sam - 30 to 40 Caucasian.
Avery - 19 to 22 African-American
Rose - 23-25 Caucasian
Skylar/Dreaming Man - Mid-Twenties.
A loveable loser who missed the train in life. There’s a likable quality about him and he’s smart, but he’s untested. The reason being is that he has never had the confidence or support to try to succeed in any aspect of his life.
A fragile young man who is trying to rebuild his life. His passion for film is a refuge for him and emotionally he feels the world is an unkind place. He has the support of his professor father, although he is estranged from his mother, which is part of his negative world view. Faced with confrontations, Avery wilts, but there is a dormant strength within this sensitive young man.
A strong personality who is busy living life to the fullest. She owns her sexuality but she is also confused by it. She has a collage degree and carries the confidence of the educated. She recognizes the broken parts of herself, but is not defeated by them. She connects or not, with people who interest her sexually, but she is self aware enough to know that emotionally this might not be healthy for her. She has empathy, but is also self serving and is manipulative.
Dreaming man simply falls asleep in the movie theatre and is woken by Sam and Avery.
Skylar is the new employee who replaces Avery when he is fired. Skylar is young, energetic and
efficient. He brings the ‘unbroken’ energy of a healthy individual who is passing through a present job onto a career one day soon.
