Read the Reviews:
"With a particularly well-chosen cast, strong stage effects and Shue's batty script, the result is a production that takes this little classic to another level." - Alex Miller, Vail Daily
"...masterful performances by the entire cast." - Emilee Hatfield, Riley Reels
"...through the goofiness of it all, there are genuine laughs and a true reflection." - Joanne Ostrow, Denver Post
"The Foreigner creates gales of laughter and some insights" - Juliet Wittman, Westword
"The Foreigner brings laughs but with a reminder" - Sonya Ellingboe, Colorado Community News
Charlie Baker, a painfully shy Englishman, finds himself at a rural Georgia hunting 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.
Please note: There are prop guns used onstage in this production of The Foreigner , as well as offstage gunshot and explosion sounds.
