Willum Cubbert, is ecstatic.
The man who saved his life in Viet Nam – a hero whom Willum never actually met – is coming to town. Finally, he’ll have a chance to properly thank his savior!
But Rick Steadman - the brave and valiant soldier of Willum’s imagination – turns out to be a “nerd” with no social sense, little intelligence, and less tact. Willum’s imagination and reality collide in hilarious ways as the curse that is Rick Steadman turns Willum’s world upside down.
If it weren’t for his untimely death in a plane crash at just 39 years old, Shue’s name would likely be spoken with that of Neil Simon when listing influential American comedic playwrights. “The Nerd” is a testament to his skill; it is laugh-out-loud funny!
Production dates: February 16 - March 2, 2024.
