Presented as a benefit for MCC Theater's Playwrights' Coalition, Filthy Talk will be presented June 3-5. The June 3 reading will include a post-performance reception with the cast. All performances are at 7 PM. According to MCC, "Sex, sexism, bigotry and even 'Frank f----n' Sinatra' are all given the one-two punch in this finely fused attack on the degraded rubble we sometimes call American culture."

Eve (Rock 'n' Roll), Long ("Jeepers Creepers") and Knight ("Grey's Anatomy") will be joined by additional cast members to be announced.

LaBute's plays include Reasons to Be Pretty, New Testament, Helter Skelter, Second of Pleasure, The Mercy Seat, The Distance From Here, In a Dark Dark House, Autobahn, bash: latter-day plays, The Shape of Things, and the films "In the Company of Men," "Your Friends and Neighbors," "Nurse Betty," "Possession" and "Wicker Man."

MCC will produce his play The Break of Noon this fall under the direction of Jo Bonney.

For tickets, priced $39-$99, phone (212) 279-4200 or visit MCCTheater. The Lucille Lortel Theatre is located at 121 Christopher Street.
