9 – 24 August @ Old Mill Theatre, South Perth ·
Presented by Serial Productions ·

How far would you go to get rid of an unwelcome houseguest? It’s a question explored in The Nerd, a side-splitting comedy from Serial Productions at the Old Mill Theatre, written by US playwright Larry Shue and directed by Joe Isaia and Rob Warner.

The story focuses on young architect Willum, visited by ex-GI Rick Steadman – a man he has never met but who saved Willum’s life after he was seriously wounded in Vietnam. Willum is delighted when Rick shows up unexpectedly at his apartment on the night of his 34th birthday party, although Rick’s awkward manner and inappropriate behaviour soon throw the occasion into shambles…

The Nerd plays at 7.30pm August 9, 10, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 21, 22, 23 and 24 with 2pm matinees August 11 and 18. Tickets are $25, $22 concession – book at
http://www.trybooking.com/BDMTU. On August 16, 50 per cent proceeds will go to the WA Heart and Lung Transplant Foundation.

The heritage-listed Old Mill Theatre is on the corner of Mends Street and Mill Point Road, South Perth (opposite the Windsor Hotel and Australia Post).
