The Nerd

Rick Steadman is a indisputably a hero. While serving in Vietnam, he dragged Willum Cubbert’s body to safety and then disappeared, like a guardian angel’s dad who went out to the harp store one day and never came back.

As it turns out, he’s also completely intolerable. This becomes clear only when, after a few years of mutual correspondence, Rick suddenly pops up in the flesh. He arrives in the middle of Willum’s 34th birthday party and then simply refuses to leave, even after revealing himself as the nerd of the title: a tactless, bumbling dope who begins to destroy Willum’s career as a rising architect just as surely as he’d saved his life before. Meanwhile, Willum’s friend Axel and not-entirely-secret crush Tansy look on as the mystery builds: what is this man really doing in Willum’s life? Playwright Larry Shue resolves the play’s undercurrents of dark comedy only in the final act, with a twist that forces the audience to reconsider everything they’ve just seen.<p>
