Play - Broadway Premiere
Running Time: 1hr 35mins

The angst, anguish and amity of the American middle class are first coaxed – then shoved – into the light in this new 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.  Our modern age of anxiety is keenly observed, with humor and compassion, in this new American classic.

 

For The Record:

"The Humans" played its World Premiere at the Roundabout's Laura Pels in 2015.
