Denis O'Hare, Campbell Scott, Douglas Sills, Michael T. Weiss, and Julie White will participate in the Huntington Theatre's third annual Breaking Ground Festival of New Readings, April 6-9.

As previously reported, Sills, Nancy Anderson, and Jill Paice will star in a staged reading of the new musical Kind Hearts and Coronets, based on the classic 1949 film about a murderous aristrocrat, at 7:30pm on Thursday, April 6.

On April 7 at 8pm, White, Mimi Lieber, and Jeremiah Kissel will read Noah Haidle's Persephone. This new work by the author of Mr. Marmalade focuses on a modern-day sculptor trying to carve an image of the Greek goddess Demeter from a block of marble because he's in love with her.

On Saturday, April 8 at 8pm, Weiss, Pamela Gray, and Will LeBow will appear in Valerie Martin's Property, based on her 2003 novel. The story concerns Manon, a white woman, and Sarah, her black chambermaid, who share the same man: Manon's husband.

Scott will star in Ronan Noone's The Atheist on Sunday, April 9 at 2pm. The play focuses on a crooked journalist whose attempt to create a scandal backfires. That evening, at 7pm, O'Hare will star in Theresa Rebeck's Mauritius, about the world of high-stakes stamp collecting.

There is a suggested donation of $10 per person per reading. Seating is limited, and reservations are recommended. Call 617-266-0800 for further information.
