SYNOPSIS: One cold November night Elias and Jenny, a young couple struggling to stay together, stop at a bed & breakfast in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. During their visit they encounter a cheerful innkeeper, her blind friend, and an eerie world crammed with toys, figurines and one very odd American Girl doll. This mystic puzzle of a play is full of surprises, both human and supernatural.  

An intimate and elusive ghost story from the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of THE FLICK. 

“Annie Baker’s JOHN is so good on so many levels
