Craig Bierko, Alice Eve, Johnny Galecki, Josh Hamilton, Justin Long, and Julia Stiles star in Neil LaBute's all new 'shorts' series, Filthy Talk for Troubled Times: Scenes of Intolerance, a benefit for MCC Theater, directed by LaBute. Performances began at the Lucille Lortel Theatre on Thursday, June 3, with additional performances June 4 and 5 at 7pm.

According to press notes, "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."

Proceeds will support MCC Theater's Playwrights' Coalition program, free PlayLab reading series and literary development activities.

LaBute is MCC's playwright-in-residence. As previously reported, another of his plays, The Break of Noon, directed by Jo Bonney, will open MCC's 25th Anniversary Season this fall. The playwright's other credits include reasons to be pretty, Fat Pig, and The Shape of Things.

Tickets range from $39 to $99. To purchase, or for more information, visit www.mcctheater.org.
