I recently saw The Foreigner performed at a small theatre in a town called Creede, CO. It's the story of Charlie, a man who comes to Georgia on a retreat away from England. He's rather antisocial; however, and so his friend tells all the other people in the inn where they're staying that Charlie doesn't speak english. The end result is sort of like a much funnier 'what the deaf man heard', which also ends up touching you and has you leaving the theatre in a very pleasant mood indeed. The incredible thing about this play is how amazingly simple it would be to perform (legistically- the acting would have to be top-notch) for either small community theatres or high schools. The cast has a total of eight characters, the play uses only one set, and the only thing even remotely close to special effects is a trap door in the stage floor. It does have minor language and the KKK does play a role (antagonist, and they get what's coming to them, don't worry) in it...but the play is absoloutly hystercial, and in the end the play is wholesome and acceptable for children as young as age 8.Was this review helpful?
