$15 without a Reservation

THE MERCY SEAT, by Neil LaBute was among the first major theatrical responses to the September 11, 2001 attacks. The 2002 Off-Broadway production was a commercial and critical success starring Sigourney Weaver and Liev Schreiber. Set on September 12, it concerns Ben, a man who worked at the World Trade Center but was away from the office during the attack, with his mistress, Abby, who is also his boss. Expecting that his family believes that he was killed in the towers' collapse, Ben contemplates using the tragedy to run away and start a new life with his lover.

THIS PERFORMANCE IS FOR MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY.
