Charlie Baker, a painfully shy Englishman, finds himself at a rural Georgia hunting lodge for a few days of peace and
quiet. To save Charlie from having to speak to strangers, the local inhabitants are told that he’s a foreigner who can’t
speak or understand a word of English. Soon the locals begin to share their deepest secrets with him, and Charlie must
decide what to do with all of this information. The result is a hilarious look at secrets revealed, which explodes in a wildly
funny climax. "The Foreigner" is the perfect mix of antic comedy and celebration of how someone unexpected can bring out
the best in us. [Organizer's description]
