I lied.

I just told someone Huntington still didn't have their New Play Reading series schedule up, but I just went to check and lo, it is up.  (I swear I last checked like yesterday.)

Kind Hearts and Coronets is Thursday, April 6, so I think I'll be skipping that.
Persephone is Friday, so that's a go.
Voyeurs de Venus is Saturday at 3, so I think that's a go.  (Does that work for you, polymexina?)
Property is Saturday at 8.  I think I'm passing on that one.
And the two Sunday shows weren't listed on the flyer I got.  The Atheist at 2pm and Mauritius at 7pm.  Neither one particularly appeals to me, though.

So I'm looking at:
Friday, April 7, 8pm
Persephone
by Noah Haidle
Guiseppe is trying to carve an image of the Greek goddess Demeter from an unyielding block of marble – she’s the love of his life. Little does he know, he’s also the love of hers. But relationships are hard, especially when stretched over centuries. Noah Haidle, author of Off Broadway’s Mr. Marmalade, brings his trademark irreverence and eccentricity to this unusual comedy.

Saturday, April 8, 3pm
Voyeurs de Venus
by Lydia Diamond (Huntington Playwriting Fellow)
Directed by Emma Griffin
Sara, a black scholar specializing in pop culture, is writing a book about Saartjie Bartmaan, derogatorily known as the Hottentot Venus. Or, she’s trying to. Sara’s own issues of racial identity emerge as she struggles to recount Saartjie’s life to a largely white audience, while Sara navigates a minefield of personal intimacies between her husband and lover. Past and present merge as the women’s stories collide in this piercing drama.
Accompaniment welcome.
