By Larry Shue
Directed by Brandon Weinbrenner

HUBBARD THEATRE

An up-and-coming architect invites into his home the hero who saved his life… who also happens to be a total stranger! The visitor is a hopeless ‘nerd’ who outstays his welcome leading to one riotous incident after another. From a time before cell phones, this side-splitting comedy by Larry Shue (The Foreigner) is one of the funniest plays ever written.
