20 is a one-night only celebration bringing together some of today's best writers with some of New York's finest actors. The star-studded celebrity event will raise funds to support the work of MCC Theater and to celebrate twenty years of great theater. The playwrights - Eric Bogosian, Richard Greenberg, Peter Hedges, Neil LaBute, Terrence McNally and Doug Wright have each penned a special piece on the theme of twenty. MCC invited them to write something wild, something funny, something heroic, to go wherever their imaginations carried them.
Lauren Ambrose has signed on to star in Neil LaBute's play, Jason Biggs will star in Eric Bogosian's play, Zoe Caldwell & Marian Seldes are slated for Terrence McNally's play and Amanda Peet will star in a play by Peter Hedges. Playwrights Richard Greenberg and Doug Wright have each written a play for 20 as well. Additional actors include Peter Frechette and Tyler Florence, star of "Food 911," with John Rando contributing to the direction team.
