Paranoia Overwhelms in Play at The Bard's Town


Paranoia, bugs, and a seedy motel room form the premise for Bug, which premieres at The Bard's Town tonight.

Bug will take place on July 10-13 and 17-20 at 7:30 p.m. each night. All performances will take place at The Bard's Town, located at 1801 Bardstown Road in the Highlands.

Tickets for each show are $15 per person. Due to limited seating, advance tickets are highly recommended and can be obtained by calling 502-749-5275. Keep in mind that the production includes adult situations, adult language, drug use, and nudity.

Bug focuses on Agnes, a divorced waitress who loves cocaine and is on the run from her abusive ex-husband Jerry. She meets Peter, a former Army soldier who is now a drifter, and they begin what is at first a platonic relationship. What follows will be a chaotic turn of events that includes bugs, paranoia, the return of Jerry, twisted conspiracy theories, and more.

Joey Arena directed Bug, which features Victoria Reibel, Neal Brewer, Katie Graviss, Chris Petty, and Sean Childress. Tracy Letts created the production.
