“A play about the horrors of ordinary life and the love we need to counter them.” —Chicago Tribune.
The Humans, by Steven Karam, is the winner of the Tony Award for Best Play, as well as numerous other awards including a Pulitzer Prize nomination for drama. Set during Thanksgiving, the story unfolds at the turn-of-the-century crummy duplex in New York’s Chinatown and in the apartment of Brigid Blake, a musician who lives with her boyfriend, Richard. Brigid’s family comes to visit for the holiday meal: her sister Aimee, a lawyer who lives in Philadelphia and happens to be a lesbian; her parents Erik and Deirdre, who live in Scranton and are unhappy that their daughters have left home and abandoned their religious beliefs; and Brigid’s grandmother “Moma,” who has Alzheimer’s disease. The play examines class issues and interrogates the idea of The American Dream in the face of unexpected hardships. The play is an intense family drama that touches a nerve.
