Fringe review: Ashes to Ashes 

Ashes to Ashes
Twilight Productions; Indianapolis
4 and a half stars

What happens when a career-locked man visits his aging hippy father to help spread the ashes of his deceased mother? In this case, really solid drama. The dynamics of the script and the interplay of the actors is quite astounding, as father and son are hurled into a situation full of pain and self-reflection. Above all, it's the rapport between the two main actors that turns the show into something quite moving and beautiful. Some of the play's best moments arise when the two men are simply sitting and reminiscing, borne on waves of remembrance into the past.

Theatre on the Square, Stage Two: Thursday, Aug. 26, 9:00 p.m.; Friday, Aug. 27, 7:30 p.m.; Sunday, Aug. 29, 4:30 p.m.
