The Nerd - A Comedy

  • Bowie Playhouse 16500 White Marsh Park Drive Bowie, MD, 20715 United States (map)

Willum Cubbert owes a hugh debt to Rick Steadman, whom he has never met but who once saved his life. He is delighted when Rick shows up unexpectantly on the night of his 34th 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. And Rick stays on and on, his continued presence among Willum and his friends leading to one uproarious incident after another, until the normally placid Willum finds himself contemplating violence - a dire development which, happily, is staved off by the surprising "twist" ending of the play.
