    A young architect who is visited by Rick Steadman, a fellow ex-GI whom he has never met but who saved his life after he was seriously wounded in Vietnam.  Willum is delighted when Rick shows up unexpectedly at his apartment on the night of his thirty-fourth birthday party.  However, Rick's awkward manner and inappropriate behavior throw the occasion into shambles.  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.
