“Bug” at The Annex
BizBooks.net is pleased to support the Vancouver production of Bug, which is now on until September 18th.
Reality Curve Theatre presents Bug by Tracy Letts.
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 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.
Directed by Stuart Aikins
Starring Lori Triolo, Paul Piaskowski, Rekha Sharma, Aleks Paunovic, and Andrew McIlroy
Bug is now on at The Annex (823 Seymour Street) in Vancouver until September 18th. Tickets are available through RealityCurve.com
