BUG is written by Tracy Letts

Directed by Lisa Abbott

BUG is a dark comedy takes place in a seedy motel room outside Oklahoma City, where Agnes, a drug-addled cocktail waitress, is hiding from her ex-con ex-husband. Her lesbian biker friend R.C. introduces her to Peter, a handsome drifter who might be an AWOL Gulf War veteran. They soon begin a relationship that takes place almost entirely within the increasingly claustrophobic confines of her motel room. Tracy Letts’s tale of love, paranoia, and a government conspiracy is a thought-provoking psycho-thriller that mixes terror and laughter at a fever pitch.


BUG runs from February 27- March 6, 2019, at the Center for Arts and Theatre Black Box Office.
