American Theatre Wing 2014 National Theatre Company Award Winner

Now Playing!

November 17 – December 18, 2016

Aspiring young architect Willum Cubbert has often told his friends about the debt he owes Rick Steadman, a fellow ex-GI  who saved his life in Vietnam. He has written to Rick to say that, as long as he is alive, “you will have somebody on Earth who will do anything for you”—so Willum is delighted when Rick shows up at his birthday party. But his delight soon fades as Rick, a hopeless nerd, sticks around and causes one uproarious incident after another, building to a surprise ending.

Conversation Sunday is coming up on Sunday, December 11. Join us after the matinee to chat  about our production of The Nerd. Free to all WT patrons!
