The evening, according to press notes, will "celebrate the courage of people who stutter - more than 70 million globally, including 5% of all children - and honor individuals whose stories and achievements continue to inspire people worldwide. The organization will debut its new name, SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young, embracing its vision that every voice matters and pledging increased support for children who stutter."
Cocktails, dinner and live auction will also be part of the one-night-only event. Gala proceeds help SAY provide more than $400,000 in financial aid annually, so families in-need can access programming for children who stutter.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
