It’s Christmas 1980, and inside a sprawling Upper West Side apartment, Faye Bascov is about to throw an opulent Christmas dinner—a tradition for this secular, well-educated Jewish family. But any family gathering is an invitation for old resentments to boil over, as Faye’s sister-in-law Julie and the extended family have plenty to hash out. Flash-forward to 2000, and the apartment, now much shabbier, reflects how the family’s fortunes have changed, and the Bascovs now have to reckon with the legacy of their family discord. An L.A. Theatre Works full cast performance featuring: Matthew Arkin as Ben Wilson Bethel as Scotty/Tim Dana Delany as Julie Seamus Dever as Jeff Zoe Perry as Shelley/Timmy Susan Sullivan as Faye Peter Van Norden as Mort with Justin Huen as the Voice of Hector Directed by JoBeth Williams. Recorded in Los Angeles before a live audience at The James Bridges Theater, UCLA in November of 2016. Featuring: Matthew Arkin, Wilson Bethel, Dana Delany, Seamus Dever, Justin Huen, Zoe Perry, Susan Sullivan, Peter Van Norden.
