Abstract:

""The Assembled Parties is Greenberg's most richly emotional work in years, and the most beautifully detailed."--New York magazine"This tragicomedy shocks us into realizing how hungry we have been for witty and wounded grown-ups who toss off gorgeously written observations without knowing how little we know about what we think we know."--NewsdayMeet the Bascovs, an Upper West Side Jewish family in 1980. In an opulent apartment overlooking Central Park, former movie star Julie and her sister-in-law Faye bring their families together for a traditional holiday dinner on a night when things don't go as planned. Twenty years later, as 2001 approaches, the Bascovs's seemingly picture-perfect life may be about to crumble. An incisive portrait of a family grasping for stability at the dawn of a new millennium, The Assembled Parities premiered on Broadway in 2013 to rave reviews and a Tony Award nomination for Best Play. Richard Greenberg has written two dozen plays in his thirty-year career, including Take Me Out (Tony Award for Best Play, Drama Desk Award, NY Drama Critics Circle Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, Lucille Lortel Award), The Dazzle (Outer Critics Circle Award), Three Days of Rain (L.A. Drama Critics Award, Pulitzer Prize finalist), The American Plan, the book for a musical adaptation of Far From Heaven, and many more. He has received the Oppenheimer Award for a new playwright as well as the first PEN/Laura Pels Award for a playwright in mid-career"--
