NRT Presents: ‘Stand Up Guy’

No Refund Theatre is back this week with yet another production to continue its fall semester slate.

This week, the group presents an original play written and directed by junior Sam Fremin. The show, “Stand Up Guy,” tells the story of well-intentioned (but unsuccessful) comedian Scott Flowers.

Flowers’ career becomes at risk following a series of bombed performances, and even the comedy club’s confrontational owner is beginning to lose patients. With his back against the wall, Flowers works with his best friend, a substantially more successful comedian, to rework his material.

The show’s emotional threads run through Flowers’ connections with his longtime love interest and her daughter, who doubles as his biggest supporter.

You can catch “Stand Up Guy” at 8 p.m. on Friday, October 15, and Saturday, October 16, in the HUB’s newly renovated Room 008 lounge. You can find it near the ground-floor fish tanks across from Panda Express and Sbarro.

As always, No Refund Theatre admission is free.


Editor’s note: Onward State contributor Sam Fremin wrote and directed “Stand Up Guy.” He was not involved in the production of this post in any way.
