STLCC-Meramec Theatre Presents “The Foreigner”

January 29, 2015

The St. Louis Community College-Meramec Theatre presents “The Foreigner” by Larry Shue at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 11-14 and at 2 p.m. Feb. 15 in the Meramec Theatre on campus, 11333 Big Bend Road. 

 

“The Foreigner” is directed by Michelle Rebollo with set design by Richard Willmore.

 

“The Foreigner” is the third production of the 2014-2015 Meramec Theatre season. The scene is a fishing lodge in rural Georgia, often visited by "Froggy" LeSeuer, a British demolition expert who occasionally runs training sessions at a nearby army base. "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. "Froggy," before departing, tells all assembled that Charlie 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; the fact that the minister's pretty fiancée is pregnant; and many 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 for the "bad guys," and the "good guys" emerge triumphant.

 

The Meramec Theatre no longer takes reservations. Admission is free. Seating is open and on a first-come basis.
