”Karam boldly forces us into a world beyond the familiar”
– Time Out
The play opens as the Blake family gathers at the new Manhattan of Brigid Blake and her boyfriend Richard. Joining them are Bridgid’s parents Erik and Deirdre, her sister Aimee, and Erik’s mother, “Momo”. Erik and Deirdre face financial trouble, while Brigid and Richard fare little better, Aimee is suffering from a breakup and mental health issues, and Momo is slipping into dementia. Against the backdrop of a family familiar enough to be our own, Karam tackles the innate human condition of fear – of career failure, financial ruin ruin, loneliness, and death – and the family’s role within it, and in doing so, he makes us as an audience question what it really means to be human.
