Pearland Theater Guild presents The Foreigner
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.
The performance on Tuesday, September 12 will be pay-what-you-can, with proceeds benefiting local animal shelters that are caring for furry hurricane victims. The performance on Thursday, September 14 will be Buy One Get One Free.
