Dust, according to press notes, "is a power play. One man is an executive with money and a paunch. The other is an ex-con with street smarts and a minimum-wage position. What starts off as a battle of wills over who will do the dusting escalates into a war for respect, the upper hand and survival. Who will be standing when the dust settles?" Written by Billy Goda and directed by Scott Zigler, the new work stars Emmy Award nominee Richard Masur and Tony Award nominee Hunter Foster. Also featured are Laura E. Campbell, Curtis McClarin and John Schiappa.
Dust's Hunter Foster welcomed two members of his immediate family, who appear in Shrek: sister Sutton Foster, who stars as Princess Fiona, and wife Jennifer Cody, who is featured as the Shoemaker's Elf and a Blind Mouse.
