The Humans


Stephen Karam’s uproarious, hopeful, and heartbreaking play takes place over the course of a family dinner on Thanksgiving. As darkness falls and eerie things start to go bump in the night, the Blake clan’s deepest fears and greatest follies are laid bare. Our modern age of anxiety is keenly observed in this new American classic that won the 2016 Tony Award® for Best Play.
