Loyola’s Department of Theatre Arts and Dance launches season with “The Bug”
October 3, 2008
The Department of Theatre Arts and Dance opens its 2008-09 season with Richard Strand’s comedy, “The Bug,” directed by Benjamin Clement.
“The Bug” is the story of Dennis Post, an insecure, somewhat hysterical employee of Jericho Corporation, a company which manufactures automation equipment. Fearful that he might be relocated, Post attempts to appeal to the mysterious Mark Kropp, the president of Jericho, but first, he must deal with three dehumanizing middle managers. When Post discovers a “bug” in Jericho’s elaborate computer system, the comfortable world of his three colleagues is shattered.
“As a mere bug in the system grows into a monster that shatters the bureaucratic facade, the subversive elements of Strand’s comedy fall into place…and you may never feel quite the same about your office again.” - The San Francisco Examiner.
“The Bug” will run in the Loyola’s Lower Depths Theatre, 6363 St. Charles Avenue (Corner of Calhoun and St. Charles), on Oct. 5, at 2 p.m., and Oct. 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $12 for general admission and $8 for students, seniors and children, and can be purchased at montage.loyno.edu.
