Annie Baker’s Haunting Drama, John Opens in October

cwk-artoberlogo-0324_colorRichmond, VA—Cadence Theatre Company in partnership with Virginia Rep is pleased to present its first production of the 2016-2017 season, John by Annie Baker. John is presented in association with Artober, hosted by CultureWorks. Elias and Jenny, a young couple struggling to stay together, arrive at a bed and breakfast in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, the week after Thanksgiving. Met by a cheerful innkeeper, and surrounded by thousands of watchful inanimate objects, the two search for connection in lives heavy with loneliness. One of TIME Magazine’s top ten plays of 2015, John intertwines the natural and the supernatural in a haunting meditation on life and love.

“Annie Baker’s mysteriously titled ‘John’ may be one of the smartest, most unusual plays I’ve ever seen.”
