Walnut Street Theatre presents Stephen Karam's Tony-winning play!
Following its Tony Award-winning Off- and on-Broadway engagement that has lasted a year and 14 weeks, Stephen Karam's highly acclaimed play about family conflict will be staged early next year as part of the 2017/18 season at the Walnut Street Theatre. The drama is a moving portrait of a family who come to understand each other very differently over a Thanksgiving dinner. Warm, witty and very funny, this Tony-winning triumph brings its joyous humanity to Philadelphia, staged and produced by the talented creatives at Walnut Street. With rave reviews from the press, see why this play won over 16 stage awards, including a Tony Award.
The Humans charts the at times fractious but always loving interplay between The Blakes, a Pennsylvania family uprooted to Manhattan for Thanksgiving. A real actor's showpiece, the play is a compact 95 minutes, with the action taking place in real time. Directed by two-time Tony winner Joe Mantello (An Act of God), this Roundabout Theatre production is a portrait of a flawed but very real family, who are only brought closer together by the arguments and bitter remarks that spill out as the play progresses.
