ABOUT:
The Blake family have assembled for Thanksgiving dinner at the run-down Manhattan apartment of youngest daughter Brigid and her boyfriend Richard. Tragically, this middle-class clan seems to be spiralling toward perilous entropy.

Stephen Karam’s blisteringly funny, bruisingly sad and altogether wonderful comedy-drama is written with a fresh-feeling blend of documentary-like naturalism and theatrical daring.

‘The Humans’ depicts the way we live now with precision and compassion. “We” being the non-one-percenters, most of whom are peering around anxiously at the uncertain future and the unsteady world, even as we fight through each day trying to keep optimism afloat in our hearts.
