The Humans, by Stephen Karam, directed by Joe Mantello
SOLD OUT - THANK YOU!
Join Democrats Abroad for a global fundraiser as we enjoy a night at the theater in London. The Humans is a transfer from Broadway, so the play will include the complete award-winning New York Cast. This production opens on August 30th, and has limited availability.
"Three generations of the Blake family have assembled for Thanksgiving in Brigid and Richard’s ramshackle pre-war apartment in Lower Manhattan. Whilst the event may have a slightly improvised air, the family is determined to make the best of its time together. As they attempt to focus on the traditional festivities, fears of the past and pressures of the future seep into the reunion and the precariousness of their position becomes increasingly evident. Stephen Karam’s blisteringly funny and deeply chilling drama is a stunning portrayal of the human condition; a family at its best and worst navigating the challenges of everyday life.
Karam’s other plays include Speech & Debate and Sons of the Prophet, the latter of which was, like The Humans, a Pulitzer Prize finalist. Two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello’s directing credits also include the hit musical Wicked, the 2018 Broadway production of Edward Albee’s Three Tall Women and the currently playing Broadway revival of The Boys in the Band.
Reed Birney and Jayne Houdyshell reprise their Tony Award winning performances alongside the full Broadway cast, which includes Cassie Beck, Lauren Klein, Arian Moayed and Sarah Steele."
