Opening on August 24 and running through September 22 is The Foreigner, the award-winning comedy by Larry Shue, directed by Dusty Thomas- Reasons.
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 locals are told he is a foreigner who can't speak or understand a word of English. Soon those locals 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 where things go uproariously awry for the "bad guys" including a run-in with the KKK, with the good guys emerging triumphant! The Foreigner is the perfect mix of antic comedy and celebration of how someone unexpected can bring out the best in us.
