The story

It’s the week after Thanksgiving and Elias and Jenny, a troubled young couple struggling to stay together, stop at a bed & breakfast in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania crammed with toys, figurines and Victorian kitsch. During their visit, they encounter a cheerful innkeeper and an eerie world filled with one very odd American Girl doll, among other supernatural surprises.


“Annie Baker’s JOHN is so good on so many levels
that it casts a unique and brilliant light.”
