News   Tracy Letts's Bug To Be Revived at West End's Found111 with TV Star James Norton and Kate Fleetwood
 
Tracy Letts's play Bug is to revived at London's Found111, beginning performances March 24 prior to an official opening March 29, for a run through May 7. It will star James Norton, acclaimed for his starring roles on TV in "War and Peace" (BBC1, where he played Prince Andrei), Grantchester and Happy Valley.



He will be joined by Kate Fleetwood in the production directed by Simon Evans, who recently also directed Richard Greenberg's The Dazzle at the same address.

The play revolves around two people on the edge — Agnes, a lonely cocktail waitress. She is holed-up for her violent ex-con ex-husband who seeks solace in drink and drugs, until a stranger arrives.

Norton has previously been seen on the London stage in the original production of Posh at the Royal Court, in Journey's End at the Duke of York's and The Lion in Winter at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.


Fleetwood, who appeared on Broadway in Macbeth opposite Patrick Stewart that transferred from Chichester and the West End, has recently been seen in High Society at the Old Vic and in the title role of Medea at the Almeida. Other theatre includes London Road and King Lear (both at the National).

Bug was first premiered at London's Gate Theatre in 1996, before a film version was made in 2006 that starred Ashley Judd, Harry Connick, Jr. and Michael Shannon reprising his role as Peter that he had first created in London. Letts's other plays include the Pulitzer prize winning August: Osage County, A Man From Nebraska, Killer Joe and Superior Donuts.



It is produced by Emily Dobbs Productions (EDP).
