Architect Willum Cubbert just can’t seem to get himself out of the rut he’s in. He can’t open up to the girl he loves. He certainly can’t stand up to his blustery boss. And then… in walks Rick Steadman, the ex-GI and titular nerd who saved Willum’s life years ago. As Willum’s life goes from bland to bizarre you will grab your guts laughing, and you will certainly remember, oh, how much worse things could be. The Nerd will run April 7-23 at NC Stage as part of their Catalyst Series.
