The Foreigner

The Foreigner

Written By:
Larry Shue

Directed By:
Edith Weiss

Laugh along as we follow a group of mismatched characters staying at a resort-style fishing lodge where a very shy man is mistaken as a foreigner who doesn’t speak English. Like a fly on the wall, the mysterious foreigner overhears more than he should about the scandalous and damaging revelations of the resort’s inhabitants. The non-stop hilarity of the play builds to an uproariously funny climax where events go awry for the “bad guys” and the “good guys” emerge triumphant
