Texas State University-San Marcos Department of Theatre and Dance will present Tracy Letts’ dramatic thriller Bug Sept. 29-Oct. 1 at 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 2 at 2 p.m. at the PSH Foundation Studio Theatre on campus.

Directed by Robert Wighs, Bug is the story of a divorced waitress and a soft-spoken Gulf War drifter. Their relationship is platonic in the beginning but as their relationship grows, they are forced to confront each other’s past while fighting off a growing bug infestation that is infiltrating the waitress’ Oklahoma motel room.

The play is intended for mature audiences.

Tickets will go on sale Sept. 26 at 10 a.m. and will be $10 general admission and $5 for students. To reserve tickets, call the Texas State box office at (512) 245-2204. For additional information please contact the Texas State Department of Theatre and Dance at (512) 245-2147.
