Mariah MacCarthy (Doric Wilson Independent Playwright Award, NYtheatre.com’s 2012 “Person of the Year”) reunites with director Leta Tremblay (The Foreplay Play) on their site-specific hit Mrs. Mayfield’s Fifth-Grade Class of ’93 20-Year Reunion, this time set in an East Village apartment. Mrs. Mayfield is a rollicking yet compassionate multi-layered look at what happens when a group of former classmates hovering in their 30s reunite for an evening of partying and reminiscing. Immersively staged and intimately drawn, audience party-goers eat chili and drink beer as calamities, revelations, and battles for affection, power and ownership of memories unfold around them. Awesome 90s music and dance breaks included.
