Willum leads a safe, comfortable life as an architect with his roommates, the snarky theater critic Axel, and Tansy, whom he wishes was more than just a friend. Sure, his latest job designing a hotel for blustery and demanding Warnock Waldgrave is a bit stressful, but that’s nothing compared to how crazy Willum’s life becomes when Rick Steadman, the man that saved his life in Vietnam, shows up for a visit. As hours turn into days, Willum’s patience turns to desperation as he begins to wonder if his career and sanity can survive the antics of the socially stunted and embarrassingly clueless nerd taking over his couch and his life!
Audiences will laugh out loud as Rick turns Willum’s world upside down in Larry Shue’s award-winning and hilarious “The Nerd.” Full of witty dialogue and featuring a talented cast of performers, “The Nerd” will have audiences rolling in the aisles as Rick pushes Willum’s hospitality to his limits and beyond! This is one show you don’t want to miss!
