The Humans, winner of 4 Tony Awards® including Best Play.

The angst, anguish and amity of the American middle class are first coaxed - then shoved - into the light in this 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.

The Humans
is the winner of 4 Tony Awards® including Best Play, Best Featured Actor (Reed Birney) and Best Featured Actress (Jayne Houdyshell). Charles Isherwood of The New York Times cheers, “Stephen Karam’s play is a major discovery - blisteringly funny, bruisingly sad, and altogether wonderful; it’s the best play of the year.” New York Magazine raves, “The Humans is not just a play for now, but for all time. It’s the best play of the year.” It’s “hilarious, heartbreaking and unforgettable - the best play of the year,” says Entertainment Weekly. And Peter Marks of The Washington Post writes, “It’s the best play of the year. This is what Broadway needs more of: extraordinary Humans.”
