By the author of The Foreigner, it brims with funny bits and pieces inspired by The Man Who Came to Dinner, Arsenic and Old Lace, George Washington Slept Here, and even the Three Stooges. The play is free for any purpose other than reducing the audience to laughter. The Nerd is the stuff of one-liners, non-sequiturs and lots of physical comedy, but with a heartwarming storyline. Thirty-four-year-old William Cubbert is at a crossroads. He is not exactly failing at life, more like going through the motions. But things get exciting when Rick Steadman, an old army buddy, arrives uninvited at Willum's doorstep just as he is hosting a dinner party for an important business client. With a suitcase and bad manners in tow, Rick not only crashes the party but throws Willum's life into complete chaos. And as might be surmised, hilarity ensues.
