Directed by Antony Marsellis, the cast features Tony Award nominees Penny Fuller and Tony Roberts, who starred opposite each other on Broadway in Barefoot in the Park.

Ashes to Ashes, according to Food For Thought, "begins with two characters, a husband and wife, who say nothing at first. But when they do begin to speak the room is filled with mystery, questions and haunting images and echoes from the past."

The 2 PM reading, which honors the Blue Card Fund and artist Rosalyn Engelman, is followed by a reception and Q&A with the cast. 

Fuller is a two-time Tony Award nominee for her performances in Applause and The Dinner Party. Roberts was nominated for his performances in Play It Again, Sam and How Now, Dow Jones.

The season, which continues through June 7, will also include Neil LaBute's Autobahn (April 23); Eugene Ionesco's The Chairs (May 2); No Exit, by Jean-Paul Sarte with Richard Easton (May 8); and the Off-Broadway premiere of Susan Charlotte's She's of a Certain Age, presented by Cause Célèbre and Mary J. Davis and directed by Marsellis (April-June).

Ashes to Ashes is produced by Food For Thought founding artistic director Charlotte and Davis. 

The Beckett Theatre at Theatre Row is located at 410 West 42nd Street. For more information, call (646) 366-9340 or visit www.foodforthoughtproductions.com.
