“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. Karam's 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 daughter's 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 Karam's 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.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I read the play after having scene the Broadway staging. So I can't review it just as something I have read. That being said, this is an amazing play. The pathos and the quiet fury sneak up on you, hidden at first under the familiar quips of a typical family with its stories, in jokes, and knowing jabs at one another.

Eventually the jabs have teeth, and what seems like a subtle little family at Thanksgiving comedy turns into something different. There is a little bit of a gimmick, not a twist, but a theme that is hit maybe a little harder than needed, but it works. This is a play that leaves the audience or the reader thinking about it long after the curtain has fallen. It is a remarkable work.
What a totally convincing and compassionate play--a family of people struggling but still managing to be loving to one another.
A good play, but a long read. Can't imagine how long the running time must be.
