The 7 PM reading is being held at The New Group at The Pershing Square Signature Center in The Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre, 480 West 42nd Street.

The cast comprises Paul Dano, Peter Dinklage, Josh Hamilton and Zoe Kazan.

In Things We Want, according to press notes, "three brothers reunite in their inherited childhood home. Forced to live together again as adults, they struggle to redefine themselves as they pursue the things they want in life. While facing their own personal obstacles, a drastic shift in dynamics occurs when a sexy young neighbor suddenly enters their lives. This dark comedy by Jonathan Marc Sherman paints an insightful and bittersweet picture of the illusions people have about what makes them happy and what is within their power to change."

Things We Want enjoyed its world premiere in an extended engagement at The New Group, as the first production of the company’s 2007-08 season.
