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

This play was amazing! It was a first rate production which is rare in community theatre. The acting was supurb! The play was captivating from the first words spoken to the end. The chemistry between the actors was incredible! Transitions between acts went smoothly. The sparce sets worked very well. I plan to see to see it again and bringing all my friends too!

I really enjoyed this play! The acting was very good, the story was interesting and the production was excellent for such a small theater. The scenery was impressive when they had to do everything by hand. The beauty was surprising beautiful.
