The Foreigner

St Croix Falls

Winner of two Obie Awards and renewed critical acclaim, this American comedy classic by playwright Larry Shue has been charming audiences since it's premier nearly thirty years ago. Taking place in a lodge in Georgia, several unique and hilariously diverse guests convene to pass the time, escape their stresses, and pursue their own personal objectives, all while exploring the challenges and the many forms of communication. In this quiet fishing lodge in rural Georgia, a regular guest and British demolition expert, "Froggy" LeSeuer, returns to run another training session at a nearby army base. And this time, he has brought a friend: a pathologically shy young man named Charlie who is literally overcome with fear at the thought of making conversation with strangers. Desperate to help his friend enjoy some much needed R&R, "Froggy," tells the lodge guests that Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and speaks no English. Despite the communication mis-communication, Charlie soon finds himself more comfortable with these strangers than he ever expected, and vise-versa. This well loved American classic, fueled by nonstop hilarity, lovable characters, and a whole lot of language barriers, is certain to delight audiences of all ages. Don't miss this comic gem as it comes to life on Festival's stage. Tickets are $26 adults, $13.50 youth.
