Images have been released for the UK premiere of Stephen Karam's The Humans, which opens at Hampstead Theatre this week.

Directed by Joe Mantello, the production won four Tony Awards in 2016, and transfers with the entire New York cast. Reed Birney and Jayne Houdyshell reprise their Tony Award-winning performances alongside Cassie Beck, Lauren Klein, Arian Moayed and Sarah Steele.

The comedy features three generations of the same family who have assembled in a small Manhattan apartment for Thanksgiving. Karam's other plays include Speech and Debate – which had its UK premiere at Trafalgar Studios last year – and Sons of the Prophet which was, like The Humans, a Pulitzer Prize finalist.

The production has design by David Zinn, costume by Sarah Laux, lighting by Justin Townsend and sound by Fitz Patton.
