The critically acclaimed, sold-out, production of Bug, starring James Norton and Kate Fleetwood, is to play an additional matinee where all proceeds go the charity MIND.

This will be the last opportunity to book tickets for the show. Bug, one of the hottest tickets in town, has sold over 8,000 seats in record time across its limited season at pop-up venue Found111 in Charing Cross Road.

The additional matinee takes place on May 11 at 3pm. Tickets are available from www.Found111.co.uk. Bug will then end its extended, record-breaking, run on May 14.

James Norton said: “MIND is a wonderful and important charity and it has been incredible to work with them on Bug and have a deeper awareness of the issues of mental heath presented in the piece”

Producer Emily Dobbs added: “Bug deals with the sensitive issue of mental health and we have already worked with MIND to ensure this is portrayed accurately in the production. We are thrilled to support the amazing work this charity does.”

Tense and blackly comic, Bug is a taut exploration of two people on the edge; where the lines between reality and delusions become blurred (read Stage Review’s verdict bit.ly/1Ry5HgM).

This critically acclaimed, smash hit revival of the powerful play by multi award-winner Tracy Letts, stars James Norton and Kate Fleetwood with Alec Newman, Daisy Lewis and Carl Prekopp. It is directed by Simon Evans, who triumphantly returns to Found111, following his celebrated, sold out production of The Dazzle.
