You’re invited to a party that’s full of surprises. Watch as careful plans are upended when a young woman’s mother brings her own food to her daughter’s party—and also the “right” person to be her daughter’s new best friend. They put on their “party faces” and hope for the best, but when facades crack, secrets spill. Tears sprinkle and laughter roars as their revelry leads to revelations.
PARTY FACE, featuring Academy Award-Winning Actress Hayley Mills (“Pollyanna”, “The Parent Trap”), written by Isobel Mahon (“Glenroe,” “Fair City”), and directed by Amanda Bearse (“Married…With Children”), is coming to City Center direct from Ireland where it continues to receive standing ovations in sold-out theaters. Come see this hilarious and bitingly honest play about the lengths we go to convince people we’ve got it all together—and the love and acceptance we find once we allow the truth to expose our imperfectly perfect selves. It’s an invitation to celebrate life that you don’t want to miss

We talked to the legendary actress about her impeccable comedic timing, being Pollyanna in a dire world, and how fate has often been her ally. Carmel is such a fun character. She’s not always easy to like though, so I’d like to hear how you fell in love with her. I was touched by her, I understood her. She also made me laugh and I loved the idea of doing …Read more
