A comedy play by Larry Shue
Produced in cooperation with Dramatists Play Service

Set in Terre Haute, Indiana in 1980, The Nerd centers on the hilarious dilemma of young architect Willum Cubbert who is visited by Rick Steadman, a fellow ex-GI whom he has never met but who saved his life after he was seriously wounded in Vietnam. Willum is delighted when Rick shows up unexpectedly at his apartment on the night of his thirty-fourth birthday party. However, Rick’s awkward manner and inappropriate behavior throw the occasion into shambles. It turns out that Rick is a hopeless nerd with no social sense and little tact and overstays his welcome with a vengeance!
