The Mercy Seat - Vs. Theatre Company presents the Los Angeles premiere of Neil LaBute's scathing, trenchant and caustically funny examination of opportunism in the face of tragedy. Set on September 12, 2001, less than twenty-four hours after terrorists brought down the World Trade Center, The Mercy Seat introduces us to lovers Ben and Abby. Ben was supposed to have been working in the Twin Towers on that fateful day; but was playing hooky with Abby, his mistress and boss. Suddenly the two see a new possibility for their future that didn't exist just a day earlier. Will Ben let his family know he's alive?
