When wallflower Charlie Baker goes on a getaway to a fishing lodge in Georgia, all he wants is peace and quiet. He can't avoid the other guests, though, so a helpful friend "saves" him by claiming he is a foreigner who cannot speak or understand English. Comedy ensues as everyone unwittingly reveals their secrets and scandals to Charlie, thinking he can't understand. What started as a serene getaway becomes a hive of drama and intrigue in this exceedingly clever and outrageously funny farce. Learn More

Lovely staging of a classic! The ensemble players were a hoot to watch as they all changed characters several times. The entire cast was great, very believable and we even learned something - there is NO BALLOON in the original Jules Verne book! So don't expect a balloon, but some other set surprises are in store - VERY well done!
