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.

“Pursued – A Jonah Story” Coming to Gold Leaf Theatre
A musical version of Jonah? Must be for little kids and feature a singing whale, right? Not this time. “Pursued – A Jonah Story”, opening Feb 20th at Gold Leaf Theatre, examines the surprisingly moving, even disturbing, themes found in the dense gem of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament that is the book of Jonah. The story is richly re-imagined in the world of Dalaytha, a proud country now conquered by the cruel opulent Zoresh. When Jonas, a Dalaythan resistance fighter, is called by God to preach repentance to the hated Zoresh, he runs. And God pursues, going to astounding lengths to try to heal this one angry man. With powerful music and an immersive set design, this musical takes theater-goers on a deeply personal journey into the inherent unfairness of grace, the inevitable harshness of justice and the struggle it is to heal the seductive toxicity of hatred. This isn’t about a whale. This is about timeless themes as relevant in the 21st century as they were in the days of Ninevah.
