Winner of over twenty 2016 Best Play Awards, including the Tony Award! After a sleepless night, Erik Blake brings 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 hopes, dreams, and fears of the American middle class are first coaxed—then shoved—into the light in this humorous, hopeful, and heart-tugging new play. Entertainment Weekly raves The Humans is "hilarious and unforgettable—the best play of the year!"
