'Obscenely exciting, top flight craftsmanship. Buckle up and brace yourself' New York Times


Agnes lives in a seedy motel on the outskirts of Oklahoma City. Living a twilight existence, fueled by alcohol and drugs, she is haunted by the memory of her missing son.
When a handsome stranger enters her world, he brings with him an unexpected infestation. Soon the motel room becomes a haven for forces out to destroy them both, and a half-open doorway becomes an entrance to hell.
Bug is a comic thriller about paranoia and loss by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Tracy Letts (August: Osage County). Tapping into our anxieties about personal and political responsibility, it examines the fractures of broken trust.
From the director of References to Salvador Dali Make Me Hot (Griffin Independent 2009).
