Annie Baker’s JOHN begins rehearsal this week at the National Theatre

The week after Thanksgiving. A bed and breakfast in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. A cheerful host welcomes a young couple struggling to salvage their relationship, while thousands of inanimate objects look on.

“We are lucky enough to be living in the era of Annie Baker” – The New Yorker

An uncanny new play by Annie Baker, whose Pulitzer Prize-winning play The Flick had a sold-out, critically-acclaimed run at the NT in 2016. James Macdonald directs the European premiere, with design by Chloe Lamford, lighting by Peter Mumford and sound design byChristopher Shutt. The cast includes Marylouise BurkeTom MothersdaleAnneika Roseand June Watson.

Praise for John at the Signature Theatre, New York:

Baker’s true masterpiece: an examination of the murkiness of human relationships in which one of those relationships is the one between an audience and a playwright.” –Slate

 “…though the play runs more than three hours, you can’t take your eyes off it.” – The Guardian
