WASHINGTON (AP) — President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, plan to join the premiere of the new play "Camp David" by Lawrence Wright that opens in April in Washington.

The Arena Stage announced Thursday that the Carters will serve as honorary chairs of the red-carpet premiere of "Camp David." It's a fundraising event scheduled for April 3 to support programs at the theater.

"Camp David" follows the pursuit of peace in the Middle East for 13 days during Carter's presidency, when he hosted Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Egyptian President Anwar Sadat at the Camp David presidential retreat in Maryland. It will feature Tony Award winner Ron Rifkin as Begin and actor Richard Thomas as Carter.

The production will run from March 21 to May 4.
