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

The acting is phenomenal, the direction superb, the lighting and set were terrific. Top notch all the way. This is hard-core theater. Barney Miller on Crack. Some parts are genuinely funny and others are heartbreaking in a strange way as you become friends in a sense with these corrupt cops and insane murder suspects. It is in your face cool!
