Un Favor Anonimo (The Nerd), the farcical comedy by Larry Shue (The Foreigner), opened May 2 at Mexico City's Foro 11 Escenaria for an open-ended run. Starring in The Nerd are Jose Elias Moreno, Leonardo Daniel, Alexis Ayala, Alejandra Procuna, Amara Villafuerte and Julio Urreta.
The Nerd tells the story of Rick (the nerd), a guy who saved his buddy's life in Vietnam and comes to stay with him. At first he is welcomed by everyone, but as the plot develops he turns out to be impossible to live with, goofing up business deals, parties, and even his friend's love life.
Directed by Susana Alexander (Sylvia, Shirley Valentine), The Nerd runs at the Foro 11 Escenaria on Thurs. and Fri. at 8:30 PM, Sat. 6:30 PM & 8:30 PM and Sun. at 6:30 PM. For information and tickets call (52-5) 616-0511.
