Why See The Assembled Parties?
It is 1980 in a sprawling Central Park West apartment, home to the former movie star Julie Bascov and her sister-in-law Faye who are bringing their families together for their traditional holiday dinner. But tonight things are not as 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, as 2001 approaches, the Bascovs' picture-perfect life may be about to crumble.
The Assembled Parties scooped up the Tony Award for "Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Play" for Judith Light. In total, it received three Tony Award nominations, including Best Play and Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Play for Judith Light's role as Faye.
