The Nerd Symposium

A discussion of the Department of Drama and Dance presentation of The Nerd by Larry Shue, directed by Christopher Dippel. This side-splitting comedy was first presented by the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre, then produced in Great Britain,  and subsequently to Broadway. The action centers on the hilarious dilemma of a young architect who is visited by a man he's never met but who saved his life in Vietnam. The visitor turns out to be an incredibly inept, hopelessly clueless "nerd" who outstays his welcome with a vengeance.
