BUG by Tracy Letts

Set in a seedy Oklahoma City motel room, the play centers on the meeting between Agnes, a divorced waitress with a fondness for cocaine and isolation, and Peter, a soft-spoken Gulf War drifter introduced to her by her friend R.C. Agnes stays at a hotel in hopes of avoiding her abusive ex-husband, Jerry, who was just released from prison. At first, she lets Peter sleep platonically on her floor, but soon he joins her in her bed. Matters become more complicated as Jerry eagerly but violently returns to the woman he loves, expecting to resume their relationship. On top of that, there's a hidden bug infestation problem that has both Agnes and Peter dealing with scathing welts and festering sores—which convinces Peter he is a victim of secret military experiments. Their fears soon escalate to paranoia, conspiracy theories, and twisted psychological motives.

JACOB MONROE HATES CLOWNS by Corey Vogel

Jacob Monroe, unable to gain admittance to any other colleges near the love of his life, enrolls in the only school who will accept him: a clowning school. He soon regrets his impulsiveness, though, due to his lifelong fear of clowns. What follows is a reluctant hero’s journey to find love...but more than that, to find and accept his inner clown. Billed a “meta-theatrical tragicomedy”, this play juggles many forms of theatrical comedy and Sundown’s production was influenced and inspired by Commedia dell'Arte, clowning, pantomime and improvisation.
