Why See The Humans?

A UK Premiere featuring Award Winning Broadway Cast!

Following its celebrated success on Broadway, where it gained four Tony Awards including Best Play, Stephen Karam's extraordinary play The Humans is heading over to the West End for its highly anticipated UK premiere. This warm and witty production sees Jayne Houdeyshell and Reed Biney reprise their award-winning roles, alongside the full Broadway cast who are coming along for the ride, so make sure you don't miss this Tony-winning triumph!

This hilarious yet eerie drama reflects on the everyday life which families face, from the best days to the worst, Stephen Karam's play portrays how humans navigate these challenges.

What Is The Humans About?

Brigid Blake has just moved to Manhattan with her boyfriend Richard, and what better way to celebrate than invite her family over for Thanksgiving? When her parents, elder sister and grandmother arrive they find a barely furnished apartment, replete with dripping taps, buzzing light bulbs and strange thumps coming through the ceiling. Determined to make the best of things, the Blakes make a start on the dinner, yet the unfamiliar surroundings instills an unusual atmosphere around the table, and they find themselves being far more candid with each other than they have been in years.
