The Assembled Parties

By Richard Greenberg

Directed by Mark Liebert

Welcome to the world of the Bascovs, a Jewish family living in a sprawling Central Park West apartment. In 1980, former movie star Julie Bascov and her sister-in-law Faye bring their families together for their traditional holiday dinner. But tonight, things are not usual. A houseguest has joined the festivities for the first time and he unwittingly – or perhaps by design – insinuates himself into the family drama. Twenty years later, the Bascovs’ seemingly picture-perfect life may be about to crumble.

“Richard Greenberg’s touching comedy-drama THE ASSEMBLED PARTIES [speaks] through the interactions of interesting, well-written characters dramatized with wit, insight, and boundless affection.” —BackStage.
“…the show’s freewheeling nature makes it exciting, real, and unpredictable…The beauty of Greenberg’s play lies in its richness. The playwright captures the particulars of how a New York family lives and loves through the years.” —Entertainment Weekly.
“…elegantly moving…somewhere between a slice of life and a slice of mille-feuille. A brisk draft of intelligence blows straight through the script, tempering moments of sentiment with astringency and surprise.”—Time Out NY.
