By Stephen Karam. An American family celebrates Thanksgiving in a ramshackle Chinatown apartment. As darkness falls outside, eerie things start to go bump in the night and the heart and horrors of the Blake family are exposed. A richly detailed work by Pulitzer-winner Karam about catastrophes that afflict us and how we cope with them. Tony Award for Best Play, 2016. Reviews for The Humans: 'For all the darkness at its core… a bright light shines forth from it' (New York Times). '[An] inestimably kind, rich and beautiful play… truly remarkable and exceptionally moving' (Chicago Tribune).
