What Is the Story of The Assembled Parties?
Richard Greenberg’s The Assembled Parties is a story about long-held secrets between family members, first in 1980sand later in 2000. The attention is centered on the Bascovs, a upper-class Jewish family in Manhattan. Julie and Ben Bascov prepare Christmas dinner in the kitchen with Jeff, a bright but nervous law student and friend of their son Scotty. The Bascovs’ dinner guests are Ben’s sister Faye, her husband Mort, and daughter Shelley. Twenty years pass and another Christmas party is held—a sadder, more painful affair as time has been unkind to this family.
