MCC Theater concludes its 2019-2020 Off-Broadway Season with the world premiere of Perry Street, written by Lucy Thurber and directed by Thomas Sadoski.
Performances are staged at the Newman Mills Theater within the Robert W. Wilson MCC Theater Space in Hell's Kitchen.
Perry Street is a funny and subversive new play that explores family, class, and sex. (And sex.) Phil and Maggie live a life of leisure in their handsome West Village brownstone. They indulge in the finer things. They find joy bringing aspiring artists into their home and making them part of the family, with a few strings attached. But when their daughter returns from Brown with her new girlfriend, Annabelle, the family is challenged by a series of startling and unsettling events. In the tradition of the great American family dramas, this provocative and unpredictable new play asks: what are you willing to pay for the people and things that you desire most?
