The Humans

The Humans

The American family takes center stage in this haunting and humorous work by rising playwright Stephen Karam. Breaking with tradition, Erik Blake has brought his family from Pennsylvania to celebrate Thanksgiving at his daughter’s apartment in Lower Manhattan. As darkness falls outside the dilapidated pre-war duplex, eerie things start to go bump in the night—and the Blake clan’s deepest fears and greatest follies are exposed. Winner of the 2016 Tony Award for Best Play, The Humans is “truly remarkable and exceptionally moving…a play about the horrors of ordinary life, and the love we need to counter them.” (Chicago Tribune) Features students from JMU’s School of Theatre and Dance.
