JohnAnnie Baker, whose Pulitzer Prize-winning The Flick had a sold-out run at the National in 2016, is back with John, a new play about the uncanny impact of inanimate objects. Set in a bed and breakfast in Gettsburg, Pennsylvania, it's the week after Thanksgiving and a young couple from Brooklyn are attempting to save their relationship. Following its staging in New York in 2015 The Guardian critic Alexis Soloski praised "the playwright's feel for character and dialogue" and The New Yorkersaid it was "so good on so many levels".

About National Theatre: Dorfman

In place of the National Theatre's Cottesloe Theatre, which closed in 2013, the Dorfman Theatre offers a greater capacity, more comfortable seats, better sightlines and enlarged foyer spaces. The National Theatre's smallest space, it was renamed after philanthropist Lloyd Dorfman, founder and chairman of Travelex, who provided a large donation towards the National's £80m future development programme.
