Will Eno and Tracy Letts: THE REALISTIC JONESES, Talk and Book Signing (FREE)
"Mr. Eno’s voice…teases out the poetry in the pedestrian and finds glinting humor in the static that infuses our faltering efforts to communicate, [his voice] is as distinctive as any American playwright’s today." New York Times

May 22, 2014-July 13 2014. Opened June 10, 2014. American Premiere
MCC Theatre at The Lucille Lortel Theatre THE VILLAGE BIKE by Penelope Skinner
With Greta Gerwig
directed by Sam Gold
Becky is pregnant—and friskier than ever. But she can’t seem to get the attention of her husband, who is preoccupied with preparing for the baby’s months-away arrival. So Becky takes matters into her own hands and sets out on an adventure that starts with the purchase of a used bike from a man in town and takes her further than she ever expected she’d go.
A provocative and darkly comic look at fantasy and desire, The Village Bike by Penelope Skinner premiered at London’s Royal Court Theatre in 2011, where it enjoyed a sold-out, twice-extended run. MCC’s new production will feature Maggie Gyllenhaal (Crazy Heart, The Dark Knight)* Greta Gerwig under the direction of Sam Gold (Circle Mirror Transformation, The Flick).
*Ms Gyllenhaal withdrew from VILLAGE BIKE so as to make time for her Broadway debute in THE REAL THING, also being directed by Sam Gold.
Jason Butler Harner (COCK and TV’s Homeland) will join the previously announced screen star Greta Gerwig in the American premiere of Penelope Skinner's The Village Bike. Directed by Sam Gold, performances of the MCC Theater production will begin May 22 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. Opening night is set for June 10.
