The Humans

Winner of the 2016 Tony Award for Best Play

by Stephen Karam

The most acclaimed and awarded American play in recent memory will have its first independent production in Northwest Arkansas following its record-breaking Broadway run. After a sleepless night, Mr. Blake brings his family from Pennsylvania to his daughter’s new apartment to celebrate Thanksgiving. As darkness falls outside the ramshackle pre-war duplex, mysterious things start to go bump in the night, secrets are revealed, and family tensions reach a boiling point. Finalist for the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Directed by Shana Gold (Intimate Apparel)
