Quotes & Highlights

Known as New York’s “Mr. Broadway,” Director Stewart F. Lane is a writer, director, and three time Tony Award-winning producer (Thoroughly Modern Millie, The Will Rogers Follies, and La Cage Aux Folles). Lane decided to make his DC area directing debut with Olney Theatre Center’s The Foreigner.

Description

In a fishing lodge in rural Tilghman County, Georgia, two Englishmen arrive as guests, the painfully shy Charlie and the gregarious Froggy. Charlie attempts to avoid social interaction with the colorful locals by passing himself off as a foreigner who doesn’t speak a word of English. Since the town is full of conspiracies and secrets whirling around, he immediately overhears things that make it impossible for him to reveal the truth. Yet he still manages to expose a fraudulent preacher, save a dull-witted boy’s inheritance, rescue a widow’s home, solve his own personality problems, and even get the girl!

About the Ticket Supplier: Olney Theatre Center

Located just north of Washington, D.C. in arts-rich Montgomery County, Maryland, Olney Theatre Center for the Arts offers a diverse array of professional productions year-round that enrich, nurture and challenge a broad range of artists, audiences and students. One of two state theaters of Maryland, OTC is situated on 14 acres in the heart of the beautiful Washington-Baltimore-Frederick "triangle," within easy access of all three cities.

An award-winning regional theater, Olney Theatre Center operates under an Actors' Equity Association Council of Stock Theaters (COST) contract, one of only three theaters in the country to operate under such a contract.

In addition to its mainstage season, which emphasizes 20th-century American classics, new works, area premieres, reinterpretations of classics and musical theater, OTC offers a wide range of programs and affiliations including: National Players, America's longest running classical touring company (since 1949), which performs for high school and college audiences in over 25 states; Potomac Theatre Project, which offers experimental and alternative plays that explore provocative and challenging human situations, ideas and visions; special school performances of mainstage shows; a free Summer Shakespeare Festival; and post-show discussions.
