The Foreigner

The Foreigner


Our hearts and prayers go out to those affected by Hurricane Harvey and we look forward to working together to heal our city. We are fortunate the Pearl Theater did not sustain any water damage and we are resuming rehearsals for our season opener, The Foreigner.

The arts can heal hearts and renew a community. We are pleased to offer you a brief respite of laughter from these difficult times with this evening of comedy and entertainment. 
The Foreigner will run 3 weekends: September 8,9,10, 12 (PWYC), 14 (BOGO), 15, 16, 17, 22, 23, 24.

Performances September 8 - 24, 2017

An inventive comic romp, The Foreigner is set in a fishing lodge in rural Georgia and tells the story of a pathologically shy young man named Charlie who pretends that he can’t speak English in order to avoid making conversation with strangers. Eventually the other guests decide to air their secrets around Charlie – many 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.
