THE HUMANS by Stephen Karam | Presented by Opal Theatre Company

**There is no intermission. This play contains strong language and depictions of Alzheimer's disease.**

A bold, bruised, and billowing drama, THE HUMANS layers the fabric of a family's past as they gather at the youngest daughter and her boyfriend's New York Chinatown apartment for a holiday meal. As the Blake family pokes at old wounds and forcibly stumble through treasured traditions, tensions bubble over, secrets fight their way to the surface, and the world creaks curiously around them.
