March 30 Fundraiser: 

The Nerd by Larry Shue

One of the funniest plays ever written, this extraordinarily inventive, side- splitting comedy 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. This strange visitor turns out to be an incredibly inept, hopelessly stupid “nerd” who outstays his welcome with a vengeance.

Do you have your tickets?
