Bug

2nd Stage

 

By Tracy Letts

February 23-25, March 1-4, 2018

Agnes is a divorced waitress with a troubled past. Living alone in a seedy motel, she has a fondness for cocaine and solitude. She meets Peter, a seemingly mild-mannered AWOL drifter, who moves in with her. When they discover welts on their bodies, they suspect a bug infestation of sinister origins. Searching for answers, their escalating fears and paranoia spiral out of control. Bug is a disturbing thriller that will get under your skin. 

  • Due to the intimacy of 2nd Stage and the proximity of the stage to the door and seating area, there will be NO LATE SEATING. Please plan ahead as the exterior doors are locked promptly at 8:00 pm.
  • 2nd Stage is wheelchair accessible via our elevator, however, there is no space for wheelchair parking to watch the show. Patrons must be willing to transfer to a seat (steps involved) if they would like to attend a 2nd Stage production. 

Rated M Running time: estimated 2 hrs 15 min

BUG is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
