The Foreigner by Larry Shue
Directed by Gary Kliger
What can a shy Englishman in search of a bit of peace and quiet do, when he visits a fishing lodge in Georgia and finds it full of people who can’t stop talking?
In Larry Shue’s hilarious farce, Charlie Baker’s solution is to pretend to be a foreigner who doesn’t understand English. When the others begin to speak freely around him, he not only uncovers a few secrets about his companions but also learns a few things about himself.
On the surface Larry Shue’s comedy about the neurotically shy Englishman’s bluff is a hilarious farce but beneath its silly surface there are serious lessons to be learned about tolerance, cultural diversity, and our growing fear of immigrants.
It will tickle your funny-bone and stir your imagination.
