One of the funniest plays ever written, this extraordinarily inventive comedy was first presented by the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre, then produced in Great Britain, then went on to Broadway.

The Story

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. This visitor turns out to be an incredibly inept, hopelessly stupid “nerd” who outstays his welcome with a vengeance. “Larry Shue delivers a neatly crafted package that uses some classic comic forms to bring the audience to its knees laughing.” —The Milwaukee Journal.

“…the audience almost never stops laughing—handkerchiefs
wiping away tears of merriment…” —Variety.

“…a spring tonic of side-bruising laughter…” —The Milwaukee Tribune.
