Steppenwolf presents BUG by Tracy Letts


In a seedy Oklahoma motel room, a lonely waitress begins an unexpected love affair with a young drifter. And then they see the first bugs…Tracy Letts’s mind-bending cult classic—a luridly funny tale of love, paranoia and government conspiracy—roars back to Steppenwolf.

Steppenwolf raises the curtain once again on its blistering and extraordinary revival of BUG by Tracy Letts, featuring ensemble members Carrie Coon and Namir Smallwood. Shut down one week before closing, this production’s return is Steppenwolf’s bold refusal to let the disaster of COVID rewrite our story. These stunning performances—and this award-winning production—will once again reverberate throughout the company’s building and welcome back our audiences to the Steppenwolf they know and love: brave, brazen and defiant.

Performances run November 11 – December 12 in Steppenwolf’s Downstairs Theater, 1650 N Halsted St. For tickets or more information, call 312-335-1650 or visit steppenwolf.org. Learn more about our new discount programs, including $20 tickets, Pay-Your-Age performances, Artists & Essential Workers discount, and more.

Steppenwolf Theatre Company is America’s premier ensemble theatre. Formed in 1976 by Gary Sinise, Jeff Perry and Terry Kinney, the ensemble has expanded to 49 celebrated artists. Productions launched at the theater, from “August: Osage County” to “Pass Over,” and accolades including the National Medal of Arts and 12 Tony Awards made the Chicago theatre legendary. 2021 marks the opening of Steppenwolf’s landmark Arts & Education Center—deepening the company’s commitment to Chicagoland teens.
