"THE BEST PLAY OF THE YEAR" --The New York Times, The Washington Post, New York Magazine, Chicago Tribune, The Hollywood Reporter, Time Out New York, NPR
Drawn in subtle but indelible strokes, Mr. Karams play might almost qualify as deep-delving reportage, so clearly does it illuminate the current, tremor-ridden landscape of contemporary America. The finest new play of the Broadway season so far -- by a long shot.--Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
Breaking with tradition, Erik Blake has brought his Pennsylvania family to celebrate Thanksgiving at his daughters apartment in lower Manhattan. Unfolding over a single scene, this delirious tragicomedy (Chicago Sun-Times) by acclaimed young playwright Stephen Karam infuses the traditional kitchen-sink family drama with qualities of horror in his portentous and penetrating work of psychological unease (Variety), creating an indelible family portrait.
Stephen Karams plays include Speech & Debate and Sons of the Prophet, a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize and the winner of the 2012 Drama Critics Circle, Outer Critics Circle, Lucille Lortel and Hull-Warriner awards for Best Play. Born and raised in Scranton, Pennsylvania, he now lives in New York City, New York.
