About this show

Driven by empathy and humor, this Tony Award-winning play creates a hyper-realistic view of life and the complexities of the "American Dream." Breaking with tradition, Erik Blake has brought his Pennsylvania family to celebrate Thanksgiving at his daughter's apartment in lower Manhattan. Unfolding over a single scene, The Humans is a "delirious tragicomedy" (Chicago Sun-Times) by acclaimed young playwright Stephen Karam, who "infuses the traditional kitchen-sink family drama with qualities of horror in his portentous and penetrating work of psychological unease" (Variety), creating an indelible American family portrait.
