By Annie Baker. Directed by Matt Decker. A young couple arrives at a bed and breakfast in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, looking to spend a weekend visiting the historical sites of the famous battlefields. They are welcomed by a cheerful innkeeper into a home filled with tchotchkes, dolls, and other ghosts of the past. John is a beautiful and moving new play by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Annie Baker about spirituality, relationships, and other scary stories.
The Arden opened the Haas Stage in 1998 with this beloved comedy by William Shakespeare. This year, Barrymore Award-winning director Matt Pfeiffer creates a vibrant new production featuring Philadelphia's most exciting up-and-coming actors, musicians, and designers. It's a musical celebration of the follies and foibles of human beings (and fairies) in a fresh new staging that promises to be an unforgettable midsummer adventure.
A new musical takes flight. Based on a Scottish legend by George MacDonald, this play tells the story of a teenager who has no gravity of any kind - in addition to having no feelings for others she floats in the air, unable to ever touch the ground. Filled with wonderful characters and a beguiling score, this enchanting, clever and wickedly funny new musical will delight kids and parents alike.
