What happens when facades crack and secrets spill?

Party Face, an off-Broadway comedy-drama, is a play about a party that doesn’t go as well as its planned. The host of the party is Mollie Mae, played by Gina Costigan, who is home from the psychiatric unit after a nervous breakdown in the cereal isle of a supermarket. The people invited to the party include Mollie’s sister Maeve, her neighbor Chloe, a psych ward friend Bernie, and her mother Carmel.

The party goes haywire through a series of events, such as Mollie’s mother bringing her own food to her daughter’s party, as well as bringing “the right person” to be her daughter’s new best friend. With each series of implausible events, each character’s party face begins to crack, and as facades fade, secrets spill. As the broadway description states, “Tears sprinkle and laughter roars as their revelry leads to revelation.” According to The Daily News, “It’s a modest but fun ‘Party,'” and The Daily Beast said, “Costigan’s excellent performance is the layered heart of the play.”

The play is on at City Center Stage II on 55th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues. Despite the realistic style that the play is written in, everything about it seems improbable, from the way the characters move and speak, to how they react to each other, all which adds to the comedic aspect of Party Face. Written by the wickedly brilliant Irish playwright Isobel Mahon, Party Face is about the lengths we go to convince people we have it all together. The play is an invitation to celebrate life. You don’t want to miss Party Face.
