The Stage @ the Warner 2022 Season to Kick Off with BUG by Tracy Letts

The Stage @ the Warner 2022 Season will kick off with the psychological thriller, BUG by Tracy Letts, presented in the Nancy Marine Studio Theatre April 9-24, 2022! This production has been rescheduled from February 2022. All ticketholders will be contacted by the Box Office.

Set in a seedy Oklahoma City motel room, the play centers on the meeting between Agnes, a divorced waitress with a fondness for cocaine and isolation, and Peter, a soft-spoken Gulf War drifter introduced to her by her lesbian friend, R.C. Agnes stays at a hotel in hopes of avoiding her physically abusive ex-husband, Jerry, who was just released from prison.

At first, she lets Peter sleep platonically on her floor, but it's not long after she promotes him to the bed. Matters become more complicated as Jerry eagerly returns to the woman he loves to beat her up, expecting to resume their relationship. On top of that, there's a hidden bug infestation problem that has both Agnes and Peter dealing with scathing welts and festering sores - which has Peter believing this is the result of experiments conducted on him during his stay at an army hospital. Their fears soon escalate to paranoia, conspiracy theories and twisted psychological motives.

Performances are April 9, 15, 16, 22 & 23, 2022 at 8:00 pm and April 10, 17 & 24, 2022 at 2:00 pm. The Stage @ the Warner production of BUG is co-directed by Katherine Ray and Keith Paul.
