The Acting Company will present a benefit staged reading of Tennessee Williams' Suddenly Last Summer Feb. 13 at 7 PM at the Mainstage Theater (Playwrights Horizons).

The reading will feature the talents of Dana Ivey, Rebecca Brooksher, Betsy Aidem, Chad Hoeppner, Neal Huff and Pamela Nyberg.

A reception with the cast and director, Jodie Markell, will follow the performance.

"Suddenly Last Summer is Tennessee Williams' ground-breaking and fascinating play centered on a terrible secret surrounding a troubled young man's death, which occurred during a vacation trip. What actually did happen that summer? The answer to that question, a classic American play and some terrific acting are in store for our audience," said Margot Harley, producing artistic director of The Acting Company, in a statement.

Tickets, priced $35, are available by calling (212) 258-3111. Mainstage Theater is located at 416 West 42nd Street.
