The free presentation, which will also feature Matthew Cowles, will be offered at the Theatre Row Theatres Dec. 15. Matthew Warchus will direct the 8 PM event.
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 will produce the upcoming evening.
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.
