After a wild weekend binge, R.J. Spaulding wakes to find himself simultaneously engaged to three women who think he is alternately a Mob Kingpin, a gay activist and a Russian KGB agent. R.J. recruits his neighbor in an escalating series of lies to keep his secrets from the girls, his alimony hungry ex-wife and the largest hit man in New Jersey.

Ashes to Ashes stars multiple award-winning actors including FHT’s Artistic Directors Ross Collins and Peter J. Hill. Hill and Collins, while working daily in close collaboration on FHT’s season productions, have not appeared together on stage in over 6 years. Copperstate Productions, the company producing Ashes to Ashes, is delighted to have the opportunity to put two of the Valley’s most award-winning comedic actors together in one hilarious farce. Hill and Collins have played the roles of R.J. Spaulding and his crazed neighbor Bobby in the past and both are gearing up for another ‘wild weekend binge’. Hill’s wife, Noel Irick – called by The Arizona Republic ‘the Valley’s best comedienne’ - joins the cast as R.J’s ex-wife, Vivian.
