The Nerd

Ending Key To Enjoying HFCC Play

Richard Marsh Dearborn Press and Guide April 1,1993

For the second time in the season, the final few minutes of a show are vital to understanding how and why the rest of the show was done as it was. The first time was with the Players Guild of Dearborn's "Catch Me If You Can," performed last fall. This time, it is Henry Ford Community College's "The Nerd." Through most of the play, the more discerning playgoer is left wondering about some of the seemingly weaker aspects of the show. The final few moments put everything into perspective and the reasons for why things were done the way they were become clear.
