The play was absolutely hilarious. All the actors played very believable characters. A play that the whole family would enjoy. The humor was clean and kept you interested and laughing for the whole 2 1/2 hours.

Written By Larry Shue

Directed By Tim Gregory

This award-winning comedy classic is based on a devilishly clever idea, demonstrating what can happen when a group of devious characters must deal with a stranger who (they think) knows no English! The fact that he does fuels the non-stop hilarity of the play and sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go ridiculously awry for the “bad guys” and the “good guys” emerge triumphant. A constant invitation to relax and laugh at the foolishness of life,_ The Foreigner_ has quickly become one of America’s favorite comedies!

This production is suitable for adult and teen audiences.
