John

by Annie Baker

April 3 – April 29, 2018

Max

In the midst of the holiday bustle, young Brooklyn couple Elias and Jenny escape on a much needed getaway to a cozy bed-and-breakfast in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. However, under the watchful eye of the cheery, if slightly off, innkeeper, a ghost seems to haunt their crumbling relationship.

With her trademark rough-edged humanity, observant humor and lyrical beauty, The Flick playwright Annie Baker blends the hyper-real with flickers of the supernatural in a quietly suspenseful and transfixing work.



“Annie Baker’s John is so good on so many levels that it casts a unique and brilliant light.” – The New Yorker
