The week after Thanksgiving. A Bed & Breakfast in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. A cheerfully eccentric innkeeper. A young couple struggling to stay together. Thousands of inanimate objects, watching.  A haunting and haunted meditation by Annie Baker, the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Flick, which Undermain Theatre produced in their 31st season, set near the site of the bloodiest battle of the Civil War, where a young couple are welcomed to an eerie bed and breakfast by an eccentric inn keeper.

 

“Annie Baker’s “John” is so good on so many levels that it casts a unique and brilliant light.” -The New Yorker

 “Baker does not merely tell a scary story. She shows them, piling up like ghosts of amputated limbs from the war wounded, and makes them riveting, unpredictable, altogether human theater.” – Newsday
