The Assembled Parties
by Richard Greenberg


Overview - "As eccentric as it is cunning, Greenberg's densely packed script sends your mind spinning while you laugh... Diffidence has rarely provided an audience with such enthrallingly readable hidden agendas." - Michael Feingold, Village Voice

" The Assembled Parties is Greenberg's most richly emotional work in years, and the most beautifully detailed." - Jesse Green, New York

"This tragicomedy shocks us into realizing how hungry we have been for witty and wounded grownups who toss off gorgeously written observations without knowing how little we know about what we think we know." - Linda Winer, Newsday

Meet the Bascovs, an Upper West Side Jewish family in 1980.  Read more...

Meet 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' life may be about to crumble. An incisive portrait of a family grasping for stability at the dawn of a new millennium, The Assembled Parties premiered on Broadway in 2013 to rave reviews and a Tony Award nomination for Best Play.

Richard Greenberg has written two dozen plays, including Take Me Out (Tony Award for Best Play), The Dazzle (Outer Critics Circle Award), Three Days of Rain (L.A. Drama Critics Award, Pulitzer Prize finalist), The American Plan and the book for a musical adaptation of Far from Heaven. He has received the Oppenheimer Award for a new playwright as well as the first PEN/Laura Pels Award for a playwright in midcareer.
