Talented playwright Larry Shue’s career was cut short by his tragic death in a plane crash in 1985. He left behind two popular comedies, “The Foreigner” and “The Nerd”. Due to last season’s enthusiastic reaction to “The Foreigner”, we will be presenting his equally riotous, “The Nerd”. One of the funniest plays ever written, this extraordinarily inventive, side-splitting comedy was first presented by the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre, produced in Great Britain, then went on to Broadway. The action centers on the hilarious dilemma of a young architect who is visited by a man he’s never met but who saved his life in Vietnam—the visitor turning out to be an incredibly inept, hopelessly stupid “nerd” who outstays his welcome with a vengeance. Be prepared for an evening of glee and unmitigated fun.
