WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A haunting story that took off-Broadway by storm, John is the latest hit from American theater's hottest new voice—2014 Pulitzer Prize winner Annie Baker (The Flick). Jenny and Elias show up at an old bed-and-breakfast in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania—he wants to tour the historic battlegrounds, she wants to be left alone. But in the creaking house they find something unsettling. Is it the spirits of the Civil War dead? The smiling dolls that line the rooms? Or their curious landlady, Mertis, who switches their bedroom because "the Jackson Room can be a little temperamental"?
