The Mercy Seat by Neil LaBute

Profiles Theatre

profiles-mercyProfiles Theatre will host a special performance of the Midwest Premiere by Neil LaBute with a wine and cheese reception before the show and a talk back with the cast and director immediately following the performance. In a time of national tragedy, the world changes overnight. On September 12, 2001, Ben Harcourt finds himself in the downtown apartment of his lover, Abby Prescott. Over the course of the night, Ben and Abby explore the choices now available to them in an existence different from the one they knew just the day before. LaBute presents the brutal realities of their relationship and explores whether one can be truly opportunistic in a time of universal selflessness.

Event begins at 7 p.m.
Show begins at 8 p.m.
