Neil LaBute’s new solo play, All The Ways To Say I Love You, starring two-time Tony winner Judith Light, officially opens September 28 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. The MCC Theater production is directed by Tony nominee Leigh Silverman and began previews September 6 Off-Broadway.

The world premiere kicks off MCC’s 30th anniversary season. Light plays a high school English teacher and guidance counselor in a long-time, loving marriage, who finds herself looking back at pivotal choices and moments in her life.


“As she recounts her experiences with a favored student from her past, Faye slowly reveals the truth that is hidden just beneath the surface details of her life,“ state production notes. “All The Ways To Say I Love You is a solo play about love, hard choices, and the cost of fulfilling an all-consuming desire.“ Performances take place at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, located at 121 Christopher Street, New York.

The show marks LaBute’s 10th play produced by MCC in a 15-year collaboration that includes Fat Pig, The Mercy Seat, The Distance from Here and reasons to be pretty, which transferred to Broadway and received a Tony nomination for Best Play. Light returns to the Lortel following her performances in Margaret Edson’s Wit and Laura Wade’s Colder Than Here; and Leigh Silverman was last seen at MCC with Coraline.
