Lucas Hedges, Ari Graynor, and the Stars of MCC Theater's Yen Meet the Press
Anna Jordan's drama is directed by Trip Cullman.
The company of Anna Jordan's Yen met the press at their rehearsal studio on December 13. Directed by Trip Cullman, the MCC Theater production will begin performances January 12, ahead of a January 30 opening night. The run is currently scheduled through February 19 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre.
The company includes Lucas Hedges (Manchester by the Sea), Ari Graynor (The Performers), Stefania LaVie Owen (CW's The Carrie Diaries), and Justice Smith (Netflix's The Get Down). Jack DiFalco serves as understudy.
Yen is described as follows: "Bobbie (Smith) and Hench (Hedges) are home alone. Days are filled by streaming porn, playing video games, watching the world go by. Their mom (Graynor) rarely visits these days, and it's chaos when she does. But when animal-loving neighbor Jenny (Owen) takes an interest in their dog Taliban, the boys discover a world far beyond what they know."
