The Foreigner
by StageCenter Community Theatre

Feb. 09 - Feb. 25, 2017


The Foreigner  earned two Obie Awards and two Outer Critics Circle Awards as Best New American Play and Best Off-Broadway Production.

In a resort-style fishing lodge in rural Georgia, the plot revolves around the visit of two guests, Englishmen Charlie Baker and Staff Sergeant Froggy LeSueur. Naturally shy, Charlie is also depressed because his beloved wife may be dying. He tells Froggy, "I should have stayed with Mary, at the hospital. When a man's wife is dying, he belongs with her, not - not in Georgia."[4]He begs Froggy, "Please. Try to understand. I can't—talk to anyone now."

To help his friend, Froggy tells Betty Meeks, who owns the lodge, that Charlie is the native of an exotic country who does not understand a word of English. Betty, who has never traveled, is delighted to cater for a stranger who is "as foreign as the day is long."[5] At first, Charlie is appalled by Froggy's fabrication and protests that he can't pretend.
