REP’s “Bug” Has Just the Right Touch of Crazy

I loved this show. Written by Tracy Letts and performed by the Raleigh Ensemble Players, under the direction of C. Glen Matthews, “Bug” has everything a truly original and provocative show needs — strong performances, a riveting story, and a nice dose of crazy.

"Bug" opens on Oct. 28th in the REP Upstairs Studio at 213 Fayetteville St. in Raleigh

Raleigh Ensemble Players’ Halloween Show Is “Bug,” an Eerie Psychological Thriller by Tracy Letts

For its Halloween show, Raleigh Ensemble Players will present “Bug,” prize-winning playwright Tracy Letts’ award-winning 2004 Off-Broadway hit for mature audiences, on Oct. 28-Nov. 20 in the REP Upstairs Studio at 213 Fayetteville St. “Bug is a really fascinating show … an eerie psychological thriller that’s really fun for Halloween and the fall season,” claims Raleigh Ensemble Players’ managing director Gary Williams. “All of the action takes place in a motel room on the outskirts of Oklahoma City, and the production designers have done a great job of creating an intimate environment where the audience are voyeurs watching the action.”
