OUR EVENT TIMES

The Humans

By Stephen Karam

Run Dates: February 2 – 18, 2024

Breaking with tradition, Erik Blake has brought his Pennsylvania family to celebrate Thanksgiving at his daughter’s apartment in Manhattan. As darkness falls outside the ramshackle pre-war duplex, the heart and horrors of the Blake clan are exposed. Winner of the 2016 Tony Award for Best Play. “Drawn in subtle but indelible strokes, Mr. Karam’s play might almost qualify as deep-delving reportage, so clearly does it illuminate the current, tremor-ridden landscape of contemporary America…THE HUMANS is a major discovery, a play as empathetic as it is clear-minded, as entertaining as it is honest. For all the darkness at its core…a bright light shines forth from it, the blazing luminescence of collective artistic achievement.” —NY Times.
