Breaking with tradition, Erik Blake has brought his Pennsylvania family to celebrate Thanksgiving at his daughter's 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

And the hilarity, heart and horrors of the Blake clan are exposed

Unfolding over a single scene, this "delirious tragicomedy infuses the traditional kitchen-sink family drama with qualities of horror in his portentous and penetrating work of psychological unease", creating an indelible family portrait


★★★★★ "Gorgeous. Stephen Karam boldly forces us into a world beyond the familiar" ~ Adam Feldman, Time Out New York

"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

"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" ~ The New York Times
