Welcome to Ashes to Ashes - the Play

About Us

World Premiere!

The Athena Cats was proud to present Debbie Bolsky's screwball comedy ‘Ashes to Ashes’ -- it was the perfect holiday escape! Contact us if you'd like to license this play for your own theatre!

The story

A madcap romantic comedy that’s perfect for the holidays. Ex-couple liberal Sara and right-winger Jefferson are polar opposites about everything — except their love and devotion for their two, newly deceased, filthy-rich best friends. Trapped by the time-constraints of their friends' will, the two are forced to spend the next 16 days, 21 hours and 32 minutes together, scattering ashes across Europe. Whether they make it or not, the audience is in for a bumpy and funny ride. Presented by The Athena Cats, a collective of Southern California female playwrights and directors.
