Piedmont College Theatre troupe explores the search for self-awareness and the journey every human being must face to have a bountiful life in Larry Shue’s comedy, “The Foreigner.”
Set in a Georgia fishing lodge, the laughs pile up after one guest, Charlie, is mistakenly believed to be a foreigner who does not speak English. The other guests feel free to pour out their souls to Charlie, who must pretend not to understand their confessions.
“Each character is foreign to themselves in one way or another, and as the play progresses each character discovers more about their own self,” director John F. Spiegel said. “We really want to express the important fact that all of the characters throughout the show are foreigners in their own way.”
On the one hand discoveries are wonderful; on the other hand, is it possible for someone to discover too much? What secrets will unfold in the heart of the lodge? Join the cast of “The Foreigner” to reveal the mysteries.
Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 9–11 and 2 p.m. Feb. 12 on the Swanson Center Mainstage.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for seniors and students and free for Piedmont College faculty, staff and students. Tickets may be ordered online at piedmont.edu/fa or by calling 706-778-8500 ext.1355.
