Theatre Arlington Presents: The Nerd

Called the funniest play ever written by some, Willum Cubbert invites Rick Steadman (someone who saved Willum’s life, but whom Willum has never met) to stay with him.

Friday & Saturday performances are at 8 p.m.; Sunday’s show begins at 2 p.m. Tickets are $22 (with discounts available for Students/Seniors or for Press Pass members).
