About the Play:
Irish-American Erik Blake has brought his wife and his mother for Thanksgiving at the new home of his daughter and her boyfriend in lower Manhattan. His mother (affectionately referred to as “Momo”) is suffering from Alzheimer’s, and his other daughter, Aimee, has recently been the victim of a nasty breakup. The parents are disappointed that their daughters have left home to struggle in New York City, and are worried that they are abandoning their values. This is the story of the quintessential family reunion: a group of people who love each other but still wrestle with basic human fears: old age, abandonment, poverty, and death. Filled with equal parts humor and hurt, The Humans is the 2016 Tony Award winner for Best Play.
