MCC Fall Play - The Humans



The Humans Play coverThe Muscatine Community College (MCC) Theatre Department will be performing The Humans the weekend before Thanksgiving. Just like your family Thanksgiving, this play is both dramatic and funny.

Filled with equal parts humor and hurt, The Humans is a Tony-Award-winning play from popular playwright Stephen Karam that tells the story of the quintessential family reunion: a group of people who love each other but still bicker.

The Blake family has gathered for Thanksgiving dinner at the New York City apartment of Brigid, the youngest Blake. A blue collar family living paycheck to paycheck, the Blakes are struggling with much more than just their economic state; Momo is battling Alzheimer’s, Brigid’s older sister Aimee just suffered a horrendous breakup, and Brigid is fighting to make it as a musician in the Big Apple. However, worse than these obvious obstacles are the secrets contained within the family, secrets that are just waiting to bubble to the surface while the turkey is being carved.

Performances will be:

  • Friday, November 16, 7 p.m.
  • Saturday, November 17, 7 p.m.
  • Sunday, November 18, 2 p.m.

Tickets are available at the door or online at new window.

Tickets are $10 for general public, and FREE with proof of school ID at the door for MCC students, staff, faculty, and other area students. The play will be performed in the Muscatine Community College Theatre.
