In a seedy motel room in Oklahoma City, cocktail waitress Agnes invites aloof Gulf War veteran Peter to spend the night. Peter identifies a hidden bug infestation in the room, and undertakes desperate efforts to eradicate it. Fueled by drugs and isolation, Peter and Agnes begin to unhinge as they uncover the source of the mysterious pests. What begins as a minor annoyance escalates into a full-blown conspiracy theory that threatens to unravel the final traces of sanity. An Off-Broadway hit, Tracy Letts' intense Bug won four Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards, and was adapted into a 2006 film directed by William Friedkin and starring Ashley Judd, Michael Shannon and Harry Connick Jr. Learn More

Brilliant play, brilliant production. This is the best play I have seen in a long time (and I see about 80 plays a year), and it beats everything I've seen at the Denver Center Theatre Company this season (and I've seen everything there since I'm a subscriber). Excellent, excellent acting. And the play is not nearly as depressing as I thought it would be based on previous reviews. The way it's constructed is very clever and unique. The first half of the play is not really a play in the traditional sense, it's a sequence of short monologues or vignettes by the three protagonists, the mother, the killer and the psychologist. It's only in the second half that the playwright starts putting the pieces together and building interaction from the puzzle pieces that were laid out in the first half. The whole thing works extremely well and doesn't get boring or dragging for one single second. Each single monologue, vignette and scene is short and concise and gives the play a fast-paced feel that leaves you breathless. Highly recommended.
