This nationally-recognized new play festival provides development opportunities to writers at all stages of their careers, and invites Boston audiences to experience the excitement of new work from the ground-up. This year, Breaking Ground features two Huntington commissions, two plays by Huntington Playwriting Fellows (including local favorite Melinda Lopez), and a new work by a young Juilliard writer whose play goes to Williamstown this summer.

Breaking Ground also features work by accomplished directors and actors from Boston and beyond. This year, see actors from previous Huntington productions like "Sonia Flew," "Love's Labour's Lost," "Breath, Boom," and "Streamers" (among others), as well as from the critically acclaimed New York theatre company The Civilians, HBO's "The Wire," and local favorites like Will Lebow, Jacqui Parker, and Karen MacDonald (among many others).

I welcome Breaking Ground Festival's Lauren Ignaut to the blog. She will be posting here all week about the behind the scenes activities. Be sure to comment and send in your questions!
