Daniel Talbott will direct the play set in the fictional town of Wauketawnee Lake, IL, and the cast will include Nick Lawson, Sarah Lemp (Adam Rapp's Hallway Trilogy, Amoralists' Pied Pipers of the Lower East Side), Laura Ramadei, Dan Abeles, Nate Miller (Keep Your Baggage With You) and Jamie Law. Squealer, according to press notes, "follows an ambitious pork farmer with a roving eye who moves in with a widowed single mother and her teenaged daughter. When he can't get what he wants, things get bloody. A full-on taste of America's poverty-soaked obsession with consumerism and our unquenchable thirst for more, whether it's meat, or love, or both."
