Casting has been announced for the revival of Tracy Letts' conspiracy theory comedy Bug, which will open at FOUND111 on Charing Cross Road in March.

Simon Evans returns to the venue to direct following the critically acclaimed The Dazzle. He directs James Norton (War and Peace, Happy Valley) and Kate Fleetwood (London Road, Medea).

Norton returns to the London stage for the first time in four years following his highly praised performance in BBC1's War and Peace and his BAFTA-nominated role in Happy Valley. His previous theatre credits include Posh at the Royal Court and Journey's End at the Duke of York's Theatre.

Fleetwood most recently played the title role in Medea at the Almeida. Other recent stage roles include Tracey Lord in High Society at the Old Vic and London Road at the National. You can read our recent interview with her here.

Set in a seedy motel room in Oklahoma City, Letts' award-winning dark comedy deals with issues of love, paranoia and conspiracy theories. It premiered at the Gate Theatre in Notting Hill in 1996.

Produced by Emily Dobbs productions, further casting is to be announced.

Bug will play a six week season from 24 March - 7 May.
