Our next production will be The Nerd, and it is one of the funniest plays ever written. The story is about an aspiring young architect in Terre Haute, Indiana, Willum Cubbert. He 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 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 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 sophistication and less tact. 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. This overall evening of theatre will be directed by Kim Dupuis, and will feature the acting talents of Tom Bernstock, Kenzie Yelin, Damien Licata, James Duffy, Mark DiPietro, Charlotte Traas, and Fletcher Yelin. Performances will be November 15, 16, 21, 22, 23 at 7:30 PM and November 17 and 24 at 2 PM, in Heberton Hall, Keene Public Library. Admission will be $15 for general admission and $12 for seniors and students. Heberton Hall has been our downtown Keene venue since 2008. We have been performing in other locations for the last couple of years while the library conducted renovations, and we are very happy to return to our old home with this funniest-play-ever, THE NERD!
