MCC Theater has announced full casting for Seared, a new play by Theresa Rebeck directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel. Performances begin October 3 in advance of an October 28 opening at the Robert W. Wilson MCC Theater Space.

The four-member company is be made up of W. Tré Davis, Raúl Esparza, David Mason, and Krysta Rodriguez. Seared will have scenic design by Tim Mackabee, costume design by Tilly Grimes, lighting design by David Weiner, and sound design by Palmer Hefferan.

The play is described as follows: "Brilliant, hot-headed chef Harry scores a mention in a food magazine with his signature scallops, and his business partner Mike finally sees profits within reach. The only problem? Harry refuses to recreate his masterpiece for the masses. Mix in a shrewd restaurant consultant and a waiter with dreams of his own and it all goes to hell in this hilarious and insightful new play that asks us to consider where art ends and commerce begins."

Seared had its world premiere at San Francisco Playhouse in 2016 and received its east coast premiere at Williamstown Theatre Festival in 2018.
