“Sweet and boisterous…The show can’t boast the square footage or the design budget or the top-shelf liquor of an extravaganza like “Sleep No More,” but “Mrs. Mayfield’s” still feels like an adventure and an event. “This party was a lovely thought,” one character says, “if vastly misguided and incredibly inappropriate.” And a lot of fun, too.”
-The New York Times
NOW EXTENDED THROUGH FEBRUARY 8!

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.
Mrs. Mayfield features Lindsey Austen, Brian Dunlop, Jesse Geguzis, Lauren Hennessy (FringeNYC Outstanding Excellence in Performance Award for Ampersand: A Romeo & Juliet Story), Adam La Faci, Christopher Norwood*, Diana Oh (2013 NYTheatre.com “Person of the Year”), Gwenevere Sisco and Jordan Tierney.
Mrs. Mayfield is written by Mariah MacCarthy in collaboration with the original cast and Leta Tremblay; directed by Leta Tremblay; associate directed by Trent Anderson, stage managed by Kacey Stamats; produced by Caps Lock Theatre; costumes by Orli Nativ.
