Part comedy, part historical drama, Ben Butler is clever without being glib, meaningful without being pretentious, and sidesplittingly funny. It’s a timeless exploration of social conscience and individual responsibility.

The Foreigner

Show Dates: April 27 – May 20

Written by Larry Shue.
Directed by David Lamb.

At a rural fishing Lodge, Froggy, a British demolition expert, has brought along a pathologically shy young man named Charlie who is overcome with fear at the thought of making conversation with strangers. He tells everyone 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 revelations made with the thought that Charlie doesn't understand a word being said. All of that sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go uproariously awry for the "bad guys," and the "good guys" emerge triumphant.
