Rehearsal images for Annie Baker's play John at the National Theatre
The play is about a couple from Brooklyn on the rocks who arrive at a bed and breakfast in Gettysburg the week after Thanksgiving.
Baker’s play premiered off-Broadway at the Signature Theatre in 2015 starring Georgia Engel and Lois Smith, directed by Sam Gold. Baker’s last offering at the National Theatre was The Flick, her Pulitzer Prize-winning play about the ushers working at a shabby cinema in Massachusetts. It was nominated for the Olivier Award for Best New Play in 2017, losing out to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
