About the Play

A family gathers in the West Village in Manhattan to celebrate the recently widowed Joyce’s 65th birthday. The evening unravels into chaos as the domineering matriarch’s true colors come out with each family member misrepresenting their present life situations in an effort to make it a harmonious evening and keep the illusion of being a “happy family”. It turns out that lying, sexual games, manipulation, dominance and love are the glue that holds this family together. The façade of happiness is like a house of cards that cascades down when the reality of the personalities crash into each other as the lies are revealed.
