Bug by Tracy Letts at Found 111 venue in London
Emily Dobbs Productions will present a new production of Tracy Lett's drama Bug at Found 111, a fringe venue in central London, from 24 March to 7 May 2016, with an official opening on 29 March 2016.
The production will star James Norton and Kate Fleetwood and be directed by Simon Evans, with full cast and creative team to be announced.
"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."
Bug premiered 20 years ago at the Gate Theatre in Notting Hill in 1996, starring Michael Shannon. Following its London run, the play made its US debut in New York and was adapted into a film in 2006 starring Ashley Judd, Harry Connick, Jr and Michael Shannon. Letts’ other stage work includes the multi award-winning 'August: Osage County' for which he received the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play.
Found111 is a pop-up venue at 111 Charing Cross Road, the original site of the Central St Martins School of Art.
Tickets for the production are now on sale.
