Directed by John J. Burke

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.

“I laughed from start to finish…” The New Yorker

“A constant invitation to relax and laugh at the foolishness of life…” The Village Voice

“Shue’s comedy is positively antic…” The Bergen Record
