Erik Blake has brought his family from Pennsylvania to celebrate Thanksgiving at his daughter's new apartment in lower Manhattan. As darkness falls outside the ramshackle, pre-war duplex, eerie things start to go bump in the night. Soon, family tensions reach a boiling point. Playwright Stephen Karam (Sons of the Prophet, Speech & Debate) takes a look at the hopes and heartbreaks of the modern American family in this uproariously funny and deeply chilling drama. Winner of the 2016 Tony Award for Best Play.
CRITICS' PICK "A haunting, beautifully realized play, quite possibly the finest we will see all season... Blisteringly funny and altogether wonderful." - Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
"Absolutely, relentlessly gripping... Rackingly funny even as it pummels the heart and scares the bejesus out of you." - Jesse Green, New York Magazine
