Winner of over twenty 2016 Best Play Awards, including the Tony Award! After a sleepless night, Erik Blake has brought his family from Pennsylvania to celebrate Thanksgiving at his daughter's new apartment in lower Manhattan. As darkness falls outside the crumbling pre-war duplex, mysterious things start to go bump in the night and family tensions reach a boiling point. The angst, anguish and amity of the American middle class are first coaxed - then shoved - into the light in this sidesplitting, hopeful and heartbreaking new play. Entertainment Weekly raves The Humans is "hilarious and unforgettable - the best play of the year!"
