Synopsis
A haunting drama that took off-Broadway by storm, JOHN is the latest hit from American theater’s hottest new voice—Pulitzer Prize winner Annie Baker (The Flick). Twentysomethings Jenny and Elias arrive at an old bed-and-breakfast in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania—he wants to tour the historic battlefield, she wants to be left alone. But in the creaking Civil War house, amid the shelves of smiling dolls and the ghostly landlady, every crack between the couple starts to surface. Echoing with tension, humor, and unease like a modern-day Chekhov, playwright Annie Baker creates a twenty-first-century nerve-jangler that had critics raving. “JOHN is so good, on so many levels, that it casts a unique and brilliant light” (The New Yorker).
