The Foreigner in Boise

Larry Shue; dir: Sari Ketter.


"Froggy" LeSeuer, a British demolition expert who occasionally runs training sessions at a nearby army base, often visits a fishing lodge in rural Georgia. On this visit, "Froggy" has brought along a friend, a pathologically shy young man named Charlie who is overcome with fear at the thought of making conversation with strangers. Upon his departure, "Froggy," tells everyone that his friend is from an exotic foreign country and speaks no English. Once alone, the fun really begins as Charlie overhears more than he should—the evil plans of a sinister, two-faced minister and his redneck associate and other damaging revelations made with the thought that Charlie doesn't understand a word being said. That he does fuels the nonstop hilarity of the play and sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go uproariously awry. Winner of two Obie Awards and two Outer Critics Circle Awards as Best New American Play and Best Off-Broadway Production.
