Playwright Richard Greenberg’s incisive portrait of a family grasping for stability at the dawn of a new millennium.
Welcome to the world of the Bascovs, an Upper West Side Jewish family in 1980. In a sprawling Central Park West apartment, former movie star Julie Bascov and her sister-in-law Faye bring their families together for their traditional holiday dinner. But tonight, things are not usual. A house guest 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’s seemingly picture-perfect life may be about to crumble.
This is a world-premiere production.
