Full casting announced for BUG starring James Norton & Kate Fleetwood

Full casting has been announced for the 20th anniversary production of Tracy Letts’ play BUG.

Joining the previously announced James Norton (War and Peace/Happy Valley) and Kate Fleetwood (Almeida's Medea/High Society) are Alec Newman (The Motherf**ker With the Hat), Daisy Lewis (Downton Abbey) and Robert Goodale (Perfect Nonsense).

Produced by Emily Dobbs, the show will run at Found111 where Andrew Scott and David Dawson recently starred in The Dazzle. Simon Evans returns to the venue to direct BUG which opens on 29th March (previews from 24th March) for a limited run to 7th Mary.

Set and costume design is by Ben Stones with lighting by Richard Howell, compositions and sound by Edward Lewis plus movement/associate direction by Oliver Kaderbhai.

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. Tense and blackly comic, Bug is a taut exploration of two people on the edge; where the lines between reality and delusions become blurred.
