An original play by Jonathan Blitstein
Directed by Daniel Talbott

Squealer was Lesser America's official inaugural production.
An ambitious pork farmer with a roving eye 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.

"Fledgling troupe Lesser America is out of the gate with a bang. Its inaugural show, Jonathan Blitstein’s Squealer, is a ballsy tribute to the special breed of American psycho only the heartland can produce."

"The production was the first play of the inaugural season of a new company, Lesser America, and the quality of the writing, staging and acting bodes well for the troupe’s future."
