Set in the Midwest in the 1970s, The Nerd
is the zany story of Willum, a Vietnam vet who has it all: a promising career, great friends and a steady girlfriend. When Rick -- a nerdy, bumbling oaf who happened save Willum's life in Vietnam -- unexpectedly shows up at Willum's 34th birthday party, everything goes off the rails. Despite the chaos caused by his inappropriate behavior, Rick is clueless and wants to move in, prompting Willum and friends to plot a scheme for getting rid of him. The comedy escalates as Willum then attempts to "out-nerd" his houseguest. John Dillon, who directed the original production of this comic Broadway masterpiece by Larry Shue (The Foreigner
), helms this Centerstage production at Knutzen Family Theatre.
