by Larry Shue
In The Nerd, aspiring young architect Willum Cubbert, has often told his friends about the debt he owes to Rick Steadman, a fellow ex-GI whom he has never met but who saved his life after he was seriously wounded in Vietnam. He has written to Rick telling him that, as long as he is alive, “you will have somebody on Earth who will do anything for you." Willum is delighted when Rick shows up unexpectedly at his apartment on the night of his birthday party, 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. As Rick stays on and on, his continued presence among Willum and his friends leads to one uproarious incident after another, until the normally placid Willum finds himself contemplating extreme measures—a dire development which, happily, is staved off by a surprising twist ending.
"It is just the kind of comedy we all need right now. Laughs, chuckles and gargantuan grins — that's the stuff Larry Shue's The Nerd is made of," says Sharon Hunter, Moonstone Theatre Company's producing artistic director. “This production will be the perfect complement to your summer plans and why I chose this hilarious play to close our second season.”
