Richardson Theatre Centre's first show of the 2015 season: The comedy THE NERD By Larry Shue Directed by Janette Oswald Set in Terre Haute, Indiana in late 1979, The Nerd centers on the hilarious dilemma of a young architect who is visited by Rick Steadman, a fellow ex-GI whom he has never met but who saved his life after he was seriously wounded in Vietnam. Willum is delighted when Rick shows up unexpectedly at his apartment on the night of his 34th birthday party. However, Rick’s awkward manner and inappropriate behavior throw the occasion into a shambles. It turns out that Rick is a stupid “nerd” who overstays his welcome with a vengeance.
