The Humans

The Humans

The angst, anguish and amity of the American middle class are first coaxed – then shoved – into the light in Stephen Karam's The Humans, an uproarious, hopeful, and heart-breaking 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.The Humans began performances at Broadway’s Helen Hayes Theatre (240 West 44th Street) on Sunday, January 24, 2016, and officially opened Thursday, February 18 to rave reviews. It has just recently recieved six Tony Award nominations including Best Play.
