ABOUT THE PLAY: The Humans is filled with equal parts humor and hurt, and tells the story of the quintessential family reunion-a group of people who love each other but still wrestle with basic humans fears: old age, abandonment, poverty, and death. Breaking with tradition, Irish-American Erik Blake (Moses Ward) has brought his wife, Deidre (LeeAnn Paananen) and his mother (affectionately referred to as “Momo”, played by Diana Mathisrud) for Thanksgiving to the new home of his daughter Brigid (Laura Floyd) and her boyfriend (Dustin Floyd) in lower Manhattan. His mother is suffering from Alzheimer’s, and his other daughter Aimee (Lindsey Lothrop) has recently been the victim of a nasty breakup. The parents are disappointed that their daughters have left home to struggle in New York City, and worried the daughters are abandoning their values. As darkness falls outside the ramshackle pre-war duplex, eerie things start to go bump in the night and the heart and horrors of the Blake clan are exposed.
