John Cullum, Jeffry Denman, Jack Gilpin, Ruthie Henshall, Deirdre O'Connell, and Thomas Jay Ryan will participate in Keen Gone Wilder, the annual benefit for Keen Company, on Monday evening, April 17 at Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street); Keen will be moving into that theater complex next season.

The event will feature readings of five three-minute plays by Thornton Wilder: The Flight Into Egypt, Fanny Otcott, Leviathan, Centaurs, and Now the Servant's Name Was Malchus. The readings will be directed by Keen's artistic director, Carl Forsman.

Over the past five seasons, Keen Company has produced 14 full-length plays. Its current offering is a revival of Mark Medoff's award-winning drama Children of a Lesser God, starring Denman and Alexandria Wailes. In 2005, the company received a special Drama Desk Award for its achievements.

The benefit will begin at 6:30 pm; tickets range in price from $150 to $250. For more information, call 212-216-0963.
