CHAFFIN’S BARN, a dinner theatre, presents THE NERD, a comedy by Larry Shue
ARCHITECT MEETS THE NERD THAT SAVED HIS LIFE
Willum owes his life to Rick, a fellow ex-gi, whom he’s never met. So Willum is delighted when Rick shows up unexpectedly for his thirty-fourth birthday party. The delight soon fades as Willum discovers that Rick is a hopeless "geek” with no social skills, little intelligence and even less tact. Rick wears out his welcome leading easy-going Willum contemplating violence. Happily, his rage is staved off by a surprising "twist" ending. Written by Larry Shue, who also penned The Foreigner, The Nerd is one of the funniest plays ever written and a side-splitting comedy!
Bradley Moore, Chaffin’s Assistant Artistic Director, directs this brilliant cast which includes: Joel Diggs, Corinne Bupp, John Mauldin, Aiden Mauldin, Antonio P. Nappo, Martha Wilkinson and Brett Cantrell (last seen at Chaffin’s as Felix Unger in The Odd Couple) as “the nerd.”
Chaffin’s Barn is excited about the Next 50 Years and our 2017 season filled with new surprises. Come experience the delicious additions to our sumptuous buffet including Prime Rib and our house favorite “Swamp Soup!”
