Breaking with tradition, Erik Blake has brought his Pennsylvania family to celebrate Thanksgiving at his daughter's apartment in lower Manhattan. As darkness falls outside the ramshackle pre-war duplex, and eerie things start to go bump in the night, the Blake clan's deepest fears and greatest follies are laid bare in this haunting portrait of psychological unease. Hailed as a new American classic and described as a "delirious tragicomedy" (Chicago Sun-Times), The Humans encapsulates what we all dread most about the holidays and the pressure to present our best selves to the people who mean the most to us. Our modern age of anxiety is keenly observed, with humor and compassion, in this new American classic.
