The Foreigner

Nov 16-Dec 1

The Foreigner 

Lauren K. Woods Theatre - 8 PM

Winner of 2 Obie (Off-Broadway) awards and two Outer Critics Circle awards as Best New American Play and Best Off-Broadway production, The Foreigner is an inspired comic romp. Set in rural Georgia, this comedy investigates what can happen when a group of people encounter a stranger who (they think) neither speaks nor reads English. That he does fuels the nonstop hilarity of the play and sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go uproariously awry for the "bad guys" and the "good guys" emerge triumphant.
