The free presentation, which also features Matthew Cowles, will begin at 8 PM at the Theatre Row Theatres. Matthew Warchus directs.

NICE FISH! is based on the poems of Minnesota poet Louis Jenkins, whose work was brought to the attention of TV watchers during the 2008 Tony Awards when Rylance quoted a Jenkins selection during his Tony acceptance speech.

Stuart Thompson Productions is producing the one-night-only event.

Although the NICE FISH! reading is free, donations will be accepted to benefit Survival International (www.survival-international.org), a charity benefiting tribal peoples around the globe.

Theatre Row Theatres is located in Manhattan at 410 West 42nd Street. For tickets email RSVP@stpnyc.com.
