The Foreigner

By Larry Shue

Directed by Jonathan Michaelsen

Charlie's life is not going so well. An escape to the woods sounds like just the ticket. Just a quiet getaway where no one will bother him...

Set inside a fishing lodge in rural Georgia, The Foreigner opens with two Englishmen, Froggy and Charlie, arriving as guests. To discourage interaction with the other inhabitants, Froggy claims that Charlie is a "foreigner" from an exotic country and does not speak English. Under the assumption that he cannot understand them, the other guests quickly begin revealing their secrets, and attempting to engage Charlie in supremely awkward "conversations" as he becomes the center of attention.

The Foreigner received two Obie Awards and two Outer Critics Circle Awards as Best New American Play and Best Off-Broadway Production.
