“America’s reigning misanthrope” (The Village Voice) Neil LaBute gets down and dirty once more in Filthy Talk for Troubled Times. 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. Internationally renowned for his darkly-comic morality plays (Some Girl(s), Fat Pig), and fresh off the Tony Award-nominated Broadway run of Reasons to Be Pretty, Neil LaBute returns to MCC Theater to direct his latest provocation for three benefit performances only.
Tickets for the general public, ranging from $39 to $99, may be purchased by visiting http://www.mcctheater.org/ or calling (212) 279-4200. The Thursday, June 3 performance will include an exclusive post-show celebration with members of the company.
