Elias and Jenny, a young couple struggling to stay together, arrive at a bed and breakfast in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, the week after Thanksgiving. Met by a cheerful innkeeper, and surrounded by thousands of watchful inanimate objects, the two search for connection in lives heavy with loneliness. One of TIME Magazine’s top ten plays of 2015, John intertwines the natural and the supernatural in a haunting meditation on life and love. Nominated for the 2016 Lucille Lortel Outstanding Play Award.
“Annie Baker’s John… is so good on so many levels that it casts a unique and brilliant light.” —The New Yorker
