Reeling from an acrimonious divorce, Barbara finds solace in her overactive imagination. After conjuring her dream lover--a sexy Conquistador decked out in a full suit of armor!--the two embark on a fantastical journey which prompts her to give in to her darkest desires. Jim Knable's seductive modern-day fairy tale mixes romance and whimsy in its exploration of one woman’s quest for self-acceptance, contentment and the willingness to love again.

“Lynn Redgrave is one of the preeminent stage actresses of our time.”
-LOS ANGELES TIMES
“Mick Gordon and AC Grayling’s family play is a battle of beliefs and denials...The burden of proof is the burden of God: prove to us that you exist. This play is a feast for the mind and heart.” -THE SUNDAY TIMES (London)

An acclaimed hit at London’s Soho Theater, Grace now makes its American premiere at MCC Theater. Featuring Tony Award and Oscar nominee Lynn Redgrave in the title role, Grace is a frank and intellectually stirring examination of familial intimacy, seen through the distorting lens of disparate theological perspectives.

Grace Friedman is a mother, a wife, and a brilliant professor. Her bold assertions on the “absurdity” of religion have propelled her to center stage in the public debate over the existence of God. But Grace’s private calm is severely shaken when her son, Tom, announces a career change from civil rights attorney to priest. When Grace falls back on her well-worn cynicism, she is suddenly at odds with the moral pragmatism of her husband, Tony, and Tom’s fiancée, Ruth. Together, the family must strive to reconcile their ideological differences as they tumble toward an all-too-real personal catastrophe.

“Like a giant, mischievous child poking a dog with a stick, Neil LaBute delights in seeing what he can get away with. He’s the bad boy of American theater... Dangerous and devastatingly funny.” –Time

Neil LaBute’s bristling new comic drama, reasons to be pretty, puts the final ferocious cap on a trilogy of plays that began with The Shape of Things and Fat Pig. America’s obsession with physical beauty is confronted headlong in this brutal and exhilarating new play.

In reasons to be pretty, Greg’s tight-knit social circle is thrown into turmoil when his off-handed remarks about a female co-worker’s pretty face (and his girlfriend Steph’s lack thereof) get back to said girlfriend. But that’s just the beginning. As their relationship crumbles, their friends are pulled into the fray, and all are forced to confront a sea of deceit, infidelity, and betrayed trust in their journey to answer that oh-so-American question: How much is pretty worth?
