Regional Premiere – Winner of the 2016 Tony Award for Best Play The Humans is an uproarious, hopeful, and heartbreaking play that takes place over the course of a family Thanksgiving dinner. It is the quintessential family reunion: a group of people who dearly love each other but still wrestle with basic human fears; old age, abandonment, poverty, and death. The Humans is a perfectly balanced piece of theatre that consists of equal parts of humor and hurt.
