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