The Humans

Date: 9 Aug 2018

“[A] bruisingly sad comedy-drama about an American family teetering on the edge of the abyss,” wrote New York Times critic Charles Isherwood on seeing Stephen Karam’s The Humans in 2016.

“’The title may sound generic, but there’s nothing blurry about Mr. Karam’s scorching drama … [the] play might almost qualify as deep-delving reportage, so clearly does it illuminate the current, tremor-ridden landscape of contemporary America.”

Anthea Williams directs this Sydney premiere. Di Adams​, ​Madeleine Jones​,​ Diana McLean​​, ​Arky Michael​, ​Reza Momenzada and ​Eloise Snape​ feature.
