The World Premiere production of Transfers, written by MCC Theater's Youth Company Playwriting Lab Director and Obie Award winner Lucy Thurber, and directed by Jackson Gay, opened just last night at the Lucille Lortel Theatre.

The cast features Lucille Lortel Award nominee Ato Blankson-Wood, "The Knick" series regular Leon Addison Brown, Juan Castano, Glenn Davis, and "Godless" star Samantha Soule.

As previously announced, Transfers was inspired by young artists participating in the MCC Theater Youth Company, and will begin previews at the Lucille Lortel Theatre (121 Christopher Street) on Thursday, April 5th, with an official opening night set for Monday, April 23rd. To purchase tickets, and for more information, please visit www.mcctheater.org.

In Transfers, Cristofer and Clarence are two gifted students from the South Bronx. After two years at a local community college being coached by faculty members, the young men are competing for a life-changing scholarship at an elite northeast university. During a campus visit, the young men are unexpectedly confronted with their shared past while trying to break through a system that seems designed to keep them on the outside.
