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

Another Goldstar bargain and another bona fide hit for LAMB'S! We thoroughly enjoyed the performance and learning about the beginnings of Habitat for Humanity. Well-acted and entertaining. Definitely recommend to other Goldstar members.
Quotes & Highlights
- "Critic's Choice: Lamb's Players Theatre and director Robert Smyth roll out a production that feels rooted in the soil and soul of the civil-rights-era South. A mix of homespun humor and spiritual heft goes to the heart of Dennis Hassell's gospel-laced drama." --<em>San Diego Union-Tribune</em><em> </em>

The Glory Man
Written by Dennis Hassell
Directed by Robert Smyth
Music compiled, arranged and directed by Deborah Gilmour Smyth
This sweeping American story features a multi-talented cast of 17, bringing to life more than 40 characters in a charged Southern landscape. Clarence Jordan, author of The Cotton Patch Gospel, started Koinonia Farm, an unconventional racially-integrated community in the 1940s whose legacy includes the start of Habitat for Humanity. Associate Artist Dennis Hassell (A Divine Comedy) gives us an epic new play filled with passion, humor, and stirring music.
