Stephen Karam's THE HUMANS, is an uproarious, hopeful, and heart-breaking 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 that won the 2016 Tony Award® for Best Play.

Is it good for kids? As The New York Times said "The Humans is piercingly funny, bruisingly sad comedy-drama about an American family teetering on the edge of the abyss." So needless to say it does contain some adult issues.
