The Trouble with Doug was penned by Will Aronson and Daniel Maté. The new musical, according to press notes, is described as such: "On the eve of his 27th birthday, Doug Gregory transforms from a successful, independent young man into a giant slug. As his family struggles to adjust to this most unreal reality, we are treated to a dark comedy of evolution, devolution, and the 'slugular' side of life."
