Breaking Ground fest gives works-in-progress a chance to be heard

The Huntington Theatre Company reboots its free Breaking Ground festival next week with readings of five new plays, any of which you might see later in a full production.

“Readings are very useful for producers in terms of just getting to know the artists a little better and getting to know their work a little better,” says Lisa Timmel, the Huntington’s director of new work. “There’s a lot we know from reading a play, but there’s always more to learn, especially when you’ve got actors in the room.”
