Found111 Extends Tracy Letts' BUG, Starring James Norton and Kate Fleetwood
James Norton and Kate Fleetwood are currently leading BUG, the tense and blackly comic play from award-winning writer Tracy Letts (August Osage County, Killer Joe) at Found111 - and now, audiences have a greater chance to catch it.
According to The Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye, the production, which opened to rave reviews last month, has extended its run an extra week, and will now close 14 May.
Bug, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, is a taut exploration of two people on the edge, where the lines between reality and delusions become blurred.
A seedy motel room. Oklahoma City. Summer. Agnes, a lonely cocktail waitress, is holed-up from her violent ex-con ex-husband, seeking solace in drink and drugs. Until a stranger arrives.
James Norton is best known for War and Peace (BBC), Happy Valley (BBC) and Grantchester (ITV), while Kate Fleetwood's work includes London Road (NT), High Society (Old Vic) and Medea (Almeida). The cast also includes Alec Newman (The Motherf**ker With the Hat & Danton's Death, NT; King Lear, Donmar), Daisy Lewis (teacher Sarah Buntin in Downton Abbey) and Robert Goodale (Perfect Nonsense, Duke of York's; Dr Faustus, Shakespeare's Globe).
Director Simon Evans returns to Found111, the thrilling new pop-up theatre space at the site of the original Central Saint Martins School of Art on Charing Cross Road, following the critically acclaimed The Dazzle. Set and costume designer is Ben Stones; lighting designer Richard Howell; composer and sound designer Edward Lewis; and associate director/movement director Oliver Kaderbhai.
