The Humans

Tue 30 Jan 2018 - Sun 11 Feb 2018

Stephen Karam’s The Humans is an uproarious, hopeful, and heartbreaking play that takes place over the course of a family dinner on Thanksgiving.

Breaking with tradition, Erik Blake has brought his Pennsylvania family to celebrate and give thanks at his daughter’s apartment in Lower Manhattan. As darkness falls outside the ramshackle pre-war duplex 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, with humor and compassion, in this new American classic that won the 2016 Tony Award® for Best Play.

THE HUMANS is recommended for ages 15+. All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket. As a courtesy to our patrons, it is the policy of THE HUMANS not to admit children under the age of 5.
