The reading of Greg Kotis' Lunchtime, about a cop investigating dirty New York salad bars, will feature Michael McGrath, Michael Park, Lusia Strus and Matthew Maher. 

Andrew Hinderaker's Suicide, Incorporated will be read by T.R. Knight and Aaron Tveit. According to Araca notes, “It’s been a tough week at work. Profits are down, lawsuits are up, and you totally forgot to bring something to staff potluck. Worst of all, your boss suspects that you’re trying to ruin the company by keeping its clients alive.”

Catherine Treischmann's How the World Began will be read by Aaron Simon Gross. In the play, a Manhattan biology teacher accepts a teaching job in Kansas and sets off a storm of controversy with a casual comment about the universe's origins.

Robert Zander Norman's My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys, the winner in the AracaWorks undergraduate playwriting contest, will be read by Chris Coffey and Kally Duling. A nine-year-old boy must call on the strength of his Wild West idols in the schoolyard in Norman's work.

Ayad Akhtar's Disgraced will be read by Annie Parisse, Aasif Madvi and Eisa Davis. The drama looks at the idea of being consumed by your worst fears when a Muslim-American lawyer is passed up for a long-expected partnership.

The Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre is located at 111 West 46th Street. Although admission is free, reservations are suggested. To make reservations, visit aracaworks.com.
