Tony winner Lillias White (The Life, Half Time, Dreamgirls) and Marvel and D.C. television regular Danny Johnson (Daredevil, Luke Cage, Gotham) will lead two industry readings of Douglas Lyons’ new family comedy Chicken and Biscuits.

Directed by Zhailon Levingston, the readings will be held November 12 at 1 PM and 4 PM at The Directors Company.

The cast will also include C. Kelly Wright, Inga Ballard (Ragtime tour), Akira Golz (Matilda), Doug Goldring, Josh Adam Ramos, and Lauren F. Walker (Charm).

In Chicken and Biscuits, Baneatta and Beverly attempt to put their sisterly differences aside to bury their father, Bernard. But this is no easy task, when it's revealed that Bernard had three daughters, not just two.

Front Porch Readings produces with support from the The Directors Company.

Front Porch is co-produced by Ryan McCurdy and Emily Mwakitawa with Artistic Director Zhailon Levingston; casting is by Dailee Morrone.
