The Nerd by Larry Shue

  • Main Stage at the Palace Theatre 710 Dundas Street London, ON, N5W 2Z4 Canada (map)

Directed by Rob Faust
Produced by Christopher F. Parker

Presented by the London Community Players

Nerd (also Nurd) Noun: A foolish or contemptible person who lacks social skills or is boringly studious. Faced with social obligations and a long-owed debt, a long lost "friend" arrives for a visit and it soon becomes apparent the guest is a Nerd.   One uproarious incident after another until the host starts to contemplate violence... a dire development which is staved off by a surprising "twist" ending of the Play.
