"The Foreigner"
by: Larry Shue
Directed by: Bob Goodhue

The Foreigner is a two-act comedy that enjoyed a sold-out premiere in Milwaukee
before moving on to a long run on off Broadway. It has since become a comic staple
of professional and amateur theatre all over the world. The Foreigner was the
Winner of two Obie Awards and two Outer Critics Circle Awards as
Best New American Play and Best Off-Broadway Production. It has been labeled one
of the "funniest plays of the 20th century".

THE STORY:  The scene is a fishing lodge in Georgia often visited by
"Froggy" LeSeuer, a demolition expert who occasionally runs training sessions at a
nearby army base. This time "Froggy" has brought along a friend, a pathologically shy
young man named Charlie who is overcome with fear at the thought of making
conversation with strangers. So "Froggy", before departing, tells all assembled that
Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and speaks no English. Once alone the fun
really begins, as Charlie overhears more than he should -- the evil plans of a sinister,
two-faced minister and his redneck associate and many other damaging revelations
made with the thought that Charlie doesn't understand a word being said. That he does
fuels the nonstop hilarity of the play and sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go
uproariously awry for the "bad guys", and the "good guys" emerge triumphant.
