JOHN by Annie Baker

Did you feel watched as a child, Elias?…Like there was someone watching over you. An unseen presence.”

Elly Lindsay as Mertis in Undermain Theatre’s production of JOHN by Annie Baker

 

Directed by Bruce DuBose

November 8 – December 10, 2017

A haunting and haunted meditation set near the site of the bloodiest battle of the Civil War where a young couple, struggling to stay together, are welcomed to an eerie Bed and Breakfast by an eccentric inn keeper on the weekend after Thanksgiving. A story of haunting atmosphere, quirky comedy and deeply touching drama combine to make JOHN a unique autumnal performance you won’t want to miss.
