SANBORNTON — A contemporary comedy with shades of Kafka and The Office, The Bug features an insecure but charming extrovert named Dennis Post (played by freshman Lindsey Tarbin of Franklin and Sanbornton).
Dennis, an employee from the Assembly Department of Jericho Corporation, is afraid he's going to be transferred to St. Louis. He pays a visit upstairs to Administration, naively thinking he might speak with Mark Kropp, the president. But before he can get through the door to the office of the mysterious Kropp, he must face a comic nightmare of corporate proportions in the form of Linda, Kimberly, and David, three administrators in ascending rank, whose bureaucratic facade explodes as Dennis accidentally uncovers a potentially sinister "bug" in the company's computer system.
(The three administrators are played by junior Marin Smith of Hill, and freshmen Elizabeth Beveridge and Brennan Macaig, of Franklin and Concord.
The Bug, by Richard Strand, is directed by Performing Arts Department Head Craig Jaster. Performances are 7 p.m., Thursday, April 17, Friday April 18, and Saturday, April 19. Admission is $4, $2 for students and senior citizens, and reservations may be made by calling the school at 934-4240.
