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

Join the world’s most famous wanderer, Peer Gynt, as he dreams, charms and swindles his way through life in an exhilarating quest for fame and fortune.
Experimental director David Schweizer brings this epic fantasy to life with only five actors. These agile, hilarious and versatile performers transform themselves from cowboys to button-molders, from the Egyptian Sphinx to a three-headed troll on a stage full of inventive surprises.
Satisfy your wanderlust in this wild, funny and picaresque journey.
