The Pest Years of Our Lives
The best thing thats happened to Peter since he returned from the war is meeting Agnes. Their love story unfolds in playwright Tracy Letts Bug, but its not the sort of romance one would find on, say, Lifetime Television for Women. This story includes an abusive husband, who follows Agnes to a trashy Oklahoma City motel in hopes of renewing their relationship and beating her up again. And theres cocaine addiction -- Agnes -- and an extramarital affair set in a bug-infested motel room. And a lot of paranoia centered on experiments conducted on Peter during his stay at a Gulf War army hospital.
The Pulitzer Prize-winning playwrights crafty commentary on the governments infestation of American life plays at Herberger Theater Center. The production closes iTheatre Collaboratives sixth season.
