Lurid Thriller BUG at Center Stage

Center Stage Conservatory presents a wonderfully lurid thriller ‘BUG’ written by the Tracy Letts.

Production Dates: March 2-18

BUG By Tracy Letts

Directed by:  Jennifer Golden

A lonely cocktail waitress, Agnes, lives in a seedy motel room, hiding from her violent ex-husband Jerry. One night, her lesbian biker friend R.C. introduces her to Peter, a Gulf War veteran with a mysterious past. Agnes gets involved with Peter, who grows increasingly paranoid about the war in Iraq, UFOs, the Oklahoma City Bombing, cult suicides and supposed secret government experiments on soldiers eventually drawing Agnes into his delusions. This deep and intense thriller deals with issues of love, paranoia, conspiracy theories and Agnes’ slow descent into insanity under Peter’s influence.


Featuring the Modesto favorites Noah Thompson as Peter and Traci Sky Sprague as Agnes. Rounding out the cast is Erin Isaacs as RC, David Rodrigues as Jerry and Gary Thomas as Dr. Sweet.
