"<i>The Assembled Parties</i> is Greenberg's most richly emotional work in years, and the most beautifully detailed."—<i>New York</i> 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."—<i>Newsday</i>

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, <i>The Assembled Parities</i> premiered on Broadway in 2013 to rave reviews and a Tony Award nomination for Best Play.
