The Foreigner by Larry Shue

July 10-12, 17-19, 24-26 -- 1997

When Betty Meeks, owner of a fishing lodge in Tilghman County Georgia, welcomes her old pal Sergeant "Froggy" LeSuer and his homely looking "foreigner" friend, she has no idea of the comedy to follow. Thanks to the mistaken belief that the foreigner doesn't understand English a pair of conniving evil doers unwittingly expose their dirty plot and get their just deserts. "I laughed start to finish at one comic surprise after another."--Edith Oliver, The New Yorker. "...a constant invitation to relax and laugh at the foolishness of life..."--Michael Feingold, Village Voice. "Shue's comedy is positively antic, yet pleasantly seasoned with a few dashes of sentimentality...He has raided comedy's storehouse..."--Peter Wynne, Bergen Record.
