Why See The Humans?
Stephen Karam's Broadway hit
Following its runaway success on Broadway, Alley Theater presents Stephen Karam's four-Tony Awards-winning, show; hilarious but chilling, heartbreaking and bitingly funny.
As its title suggests, this is a very human play, full of real fears and real dreams. It all starts with Thanksgiving - a day of good intentions and family reunions - but not for the Blakes. When three generations of their family gather for turkey and festivities in the rundown apartment of youngest daughter, Brigid and her boyfriend Richard, tensions soon start to rise.
Hopes and fears from all generations emerge and secrets are let loose as we see layer upon layer of the perfect white middle-class life fall away.
Just as he did in his previous plays, including Speech & Debate and Sons of the Prophet (a Pulitzer Prize finalist), Stephen Karam creates sharply scripted dark comedies that are so in-tune with our every day lives, it's impossible not to laugh.
