Bobby Cannavale joins a benefit reading of short pieces by Neil LaBute.

Bobby Cannavale, Johnny Galecki, Josh Hamilton and Julia Stiles have joined the cast of Neil LaBute’s previously announced Filthy Talk for Troubled Times: Scenes of Intolerance, which have been scheduled as a benefit for MCC Theater’s literary programs. Directed by the playwright, the readings will be held on June 3, 4 and 5 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre.

Cannavale (Tony-nominated for Broadway’s Mauritius; off-Broadway’s Hurlyburly), Galecki (Broadway’s The Little Dog Laughed; TV’s The Big Bang Theory), Hamilton (Broadway’s The Coast of Utopia; off-Broadway’s A Lie of the Mind) and Stiles (Broadway’s Oleanna; the big screen’s The Bourne Identity trilogy) join previously announced stars Alice Eve, Justin Long and T.R. Knight.

Described as a finely fused attack on the degraded rubble we sometimes call American culture, Filthy Talk for Troubled Times consists of LaBute's "unseen shorts" that give the one-two punch to sex, sexism, bigotry and even "Frank f----n’ Sinatra."

LaBute is Playwright-in Residence at MCC, which has produced his plays In a Dark Dark House, Some Girl(s), Fat Pig and the Tony-nominated Reasons to be Pretty. The company will produce his The Break of Noon in the fall, directed by Jo Bonney.
