THE STORY: What does a shy Englishman in search of rest do when he visits a fishing lodge in Georgia? In Larry Shue's hilarious farce, Charlie Baker, a proof reader by day and a boring husband by night, pretends to be a foreigner of non specific extraction who doesn't speak or understand a word of English. When others begin to speak freely around him, he not only becomes privy to secrets both dangerous and frivolous, he also discovers an adventurous extrovert within himself.
