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.
Warning, this play contains graphic violence and drug use and is not suitable for children.
