“I laughed start to finish at one comic surprise after another.” – The New Yorker
Charlie Baker, a painfully shy Englishman, finds himself at a rural Georgia fishing lodge for a few days of peace and quiet. To save Charlie from having to speak to strangers, the local inhabitants are told that he’s a foreigner who can’t speak or understand a word of English. Soon they begin to share their deepest secrets with him, and Charlie must decide what to do with all of this information. The result is a hilarious look at secrets revealed, which explodes in a wildly funny climax. Winner of two Obie Awards and two Outer Critics Circle Awards as Best New American Play, The Foreigner is the perfect mix of antic comedy and celebration of how someone unexpected can bring out the best in us.
