HORSE HEAD THEATRE CO. PRESENTS THE REGIONAL PREMIERE OF LIDLESS BY FRANCES YA-CHU COWHIG JUNE 2 – 18, 2016 THURSDAYS – SATURDAYS @ 8PM + INDUSTRY NIGHT MONDAY, JUNE 13, 2016 @ 8PM @ Fresh Arts Gallery, Winter Street Studios
It’s 2019. Alice, a former Guantanamo Bay interrogator wants to move on with her life. Bashir, her former detainee can’t let go of the past. And Rhiannon, Alice’s boldly imaginative daughter is determined to understand what happened between them. Fifteen years after Alice served as an interrogator at Guantánamo Bay, she has successfully reinvented herself and suppressed all memories of her prior life — mostly through the aid of pharmaceuticals. Now in 2019, Alice lives contentedly in Minnesota with her loving husband, Lucas, teenage daughter Rhiannon, and lifelong friend Riva — that is until Bashir appears at her florist shop, confronting Alice with the horrifying reality of her long-forgotten time at Guantánamo. As compensation for the suffering he endured, Bashir asks Alice to donate part of her liver and save what remains of his life. Meanwhile, Alice’s daughter Rhiannon relentlessly begins to uncover her mother’s past, just as Bashir infiltrates their family’s present. LIDLESS explores the conflicting eroticism and brutality of violence amid the domestic fallout of personal trauma.
