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.
Tense and blackly comic, Bug is a taut exploration of two people on the edge; where the lines between reality and delusions become blurred.
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. He directs James Norton (War and Peace, Happy Valley) and Kate Fleetwood (London Road, Medea) in this powerful play by multi award-winner Tracy Letts (August Osage County, Killer Joe).
Age Recommendation: 12+
Contains adult themes
Due to the nature of the auditorium, latecomers will not be admitted to the performance until the interval, so please leave plenty of time for your journey to the venue and arrive in good time. This site-specific performance takes place in a non-theatre building. As such, it is regrettably inaccessible to wheelchair users as there is no step-free access to the performance space which is up 71 steps.
Obscenely exciting. Buckle up and brace yourself
Bug should play neatly on Found111’s ability to create atmosphere and claustrophobia.
