It was four years ago that Alex Pollock delivered a breakthrough performance as a Vermont slacker in Company One’s production of Annie Baker’s “The Aliens,’’ establishing himself as a quirky force in Boston-area theater.
“The Aliens’’ represented a perfect marriage of actor and writer. It was immediately apparent that Pollock, like Baker, is an idiosyncratic original, with a knack for portraying jittery, soulful misfits. Now Pollock is back at Company One Theatre (the troupe recently expanded its name) for another Baker play, “The Flick,’’ and once again he pulls you in with an intensely compelling portrayal of a twitchy outcast whose every word and gesture suggests that he is broken on the inside.
