The Flea Reopens with New Play

The Flea Theater is opening its new Thomas Street space with "Inanimate," by Nick Robideau.

According to its Erica, shy and more than a little socially awkward, is in love with Dee. The problem is that her politician sister, her only and equally awkward new friend, and the nosy residents of their small town in Massachusetts don’t understand at all, because Dee… well, Dee is a Dairy Queen sign. Inanimate is a play that explores objectum sexuality, feeling like an outsider, listening to your heart and finally, finding your tribe.


"Inanimate" is directed by Flea Associate Artist Courtney Ulrich and features The Bats, the resident acting company at The Flea.
