As a part of the Guinea Pig Lab’s inaugural year, a new domestic abuse drama by Lisa Sillaway will have its first public reading on March 1. Set in an old fishing trailer on the banks of Grand Lake O’er the Cherokees in Oklahoma, the play opens a with Annie and her children living a rather desperate existence in the broken-down home while Chris makes a living driving a truck – and takes the opportunity in his absences to womanize, drink and gamble. His return home after an extended absence erupts the quiet rhythm the rest of his family has fallen into and sends both adults into a spiraling and violent downward turn. The play will be accompanied by readings of the new pieces that won the Guinea Pig Lab’s 2015 Spring Monologue Competition. New work by Amy Brady, Don Winsor, and Thomas Klocke will kick off the evening, followed by “Same Trailer, Different Park.”
