The event is part of MCC’s celebration of a decade of collaboration and new work with playwright LaBute. Proceeds will benefit MCC Theater’s literary development programs, including the Playwrights’ Coalition and free PlayLab reading series.
The Mercy Seat, which is set on Sept. 12, 2001, is described as such: "The twin towers are down and the world has changed overnight. Two people, a married man (believed to be among the victims of the tragedy) and his boss (and mistress) are holed up in her apartment contemplating their next move: return to their old lives or run away and start anew."
Tickets are priced at $250 (premium seating and post-show reception with the cast), $100 (orchestra in front mezzanine) and $75 (mezzanine).
