United States Veterans' Artists Alliance (USVAA) presents BUG, at the USVAA Theater, 10858 Culver Blvd. in Culver City, Friday, February 26th through Saturday, March 20th 2010. In keeping with a tradition of presenting bold artistic works, BUG provides an opportunity to explore how loss, conspiracy theories and bugs affect the lives of people living on the edge -- one of whom is a military veteran.

United States Veterans’ Artists Alliance (USVAA), a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that works with military veterans involved in the arts, announced today that their production of BUG: a play by Tony and Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Tracy Letts, opens Friday, February 26th, 2010 at 8:00 PM. The show will run Thursday through Saturday evenings at 8:00 PM and Sunday afternoons at 2:00 PM through March 20th at the USVAA Theater located at 10858 Culver Blvd., Culver City, CA 90230.

Directed by Keith Jeffreys (Veteran, U.S. Army) and starring Maribeth Monroe (Second City, The Back-up Plan), Christopher A. Sweeney (Veteran, U.S.M.C.), Heidi Brook Myers (Veteran, U.S. Army), Skip Pipo and Casey Sullivan, BUG digs under the surface to expose the devastating effects of paranoia, traumatic loss and conspiracy theories. Agnes White, a waitress whose dependence on drugs has taken a dangerous turn, finds a soul-mate in Peter Evans, a Gulf War Veteran who will find an answer to Agnes’ darkest question.

In this day and age of socio-economic turmoil, conspiracy theories abound. BUG examines how information from varying sources is processed and how destructive the consequences can be when people, in the absence of clear answers or trusted sources, begin needing to believe conspiracy theories to form their world view.

The Los Angeles based United States Veterans’ Artists Alliance (USVAA) was founded in 2004 as a multi-disciplinary, non-profit arts organization. From our inception our mission has been to provide veterans of all eras and all branches of the military with opportunities in the arts and the ability to make bold artistic statements with their individual works and projects.
