The Nerd

July 31 – August 10, 2013

This comedy is set in Terre Haute, Indiana in 1979, where William Cubbert, an aspiring young architect lives after serving his country in Vietnam.  He has often told his friends about the debt he owes Rick Steadman, a fellow ex-GI whom he has never met but who saved his life.

William is delighted when Rick shows up unexpectedly.  But his delight soon fades as it becomes apparent that Rick is a hopeless "nerd"- a bumbling oaf with no social sense, little intelligence and less tact.The play ran on Broadway for 441 performances beginning in 1987 starring Mark Hamill and directed by Charles Nelson Reilly
