MCC Theater announced that David Duchovny (“The X-Files,” “Californication”) will make his New York stage debut in the world premiere production of Neil LaBute’sThe Break of Noon, directed by Jo Bonney, a co-production with the Geffen Playhouse. Rehearsals begin September 28, and performances in New York will begin at the Lucille Lortel Theatre (121 Christopher Street, NYC) on October 28.
In LaBute’s newest play, Mr.Duchovny will star as John Smith, a man who, amidst the chaos and horror of the worst office shooting in American history, sees the face of God. His modern-day revelation creates a maelstrom of disbelief among everyone he knows. A newcomer to faith, John urgently searches for a modern response to the age-old question: at what cost salvation?
The Break of Noon marks Neil LaBute’s seventh collaboration with MCC Theater as Playwright-in-Residence, following the 2009 Tony Award-nominated Best Play, Reasons to be Pretty, and is his fourth collaboration with the Geffen Playhouse. Renowned for his darkly-comic morality plays (The Shape of Things, In a Dark Dark House), he teams up again with longtime collaborator, director Jo Bonney (Some Girl(s), Fat Pig), for this exploration of the daunting, sometimes harrowing process of “finding religion.”
Later in the season, MCC Theater will present the world premieres of Sharr White’s The Other Place and Michael Weller’s Side Effects. Casting announcements and specific dates for each production will be forthcoming.
