Synopsis: Now an aspiring young architect in Terre Haute, Indiana, Willum Cubbert has often told his friends about the debt he owes to Rick Steadman, a fellow ex-GI whom he has never met but who saved his life after he was seriously wounded in Vietnam. He has written to Rick to say that, as long as he is alive, "you will have somebody on Earth who will do anything for you"—so Willum is delighted when Rick shows up unexpectedly at his apartment on the night of his thirty-fourth birthday party. But his delight soon fades as it becomes apparent that Rick is a hopeless "nerd"—a bumbling oaf with no social sense, little intelligence and less tact. And Rick stays on and on, his continued presence among Willum and his friends leading to one uproarious incident after another, until the normally placid Willum finds himself contemplating violence — a dire development which, happily, is staved off by the surprising "twist" ending of the play.

Cast of Characters:

WILLUM Cubbert (male, mid-30s). A professional architect, likable and sincere, unexciting and set in his ways. Willum needs a little gumption.

TANSY McGinnis (female, about Willum's age). The woman about to choose between her boyfriend Willum and her career as a weather girl. Tansy is bubbly, wry, and definitely her own woman.

AXEL Hammond (male, about Willum's age). Dry, wise-cracking, irreverent, devil-may-care theater critic who has never done an anonymous favor for anyone.

Warnock WALDGRAVE (male, 35-60). Powerful, stern, and successful businessman totally lacking in imagination. The last time Waldgrave smiled was 30 years ago, and then it was gas.

CLELIA Waldgrave (female, 30-50). Patient but strained, harried but calm, the picture of a schoolteacher almost but not quite stressed to her breaking point.

THOR Waldgrave (male, 9-11). The son of Warnock and Clelia Waldgrave is a bratty who is a temperamental, loud, boisterous, irrepressible young monster.

RICK Steadman (male, mid-30s). Tactless, selfish, insensitive, aggravating, pointlessly dull, and the worst houseguest ever. Note: the actor playing Rick Steadman will be playing 3 parts (Rick, Kemp, and Red) and must be able to disguise his voice as Rick and Red.
