The character of introverted Charlie Baker is depressed and desperate to escape his everyday reality — and no, he doesn't want to talk about it. Hoping to shake any unwanted attempt at conversation, he slips into the false identity of a foreign, non-English-speaking traveler when he retreats to a fishing lodge. But the assumption of his oblivion quickly leads to a wealth of twisted secrets that are spilled within earshot by the characters inhabiting this lodge, turning the reclusive protagonist's holiday into anything but silent. The Foreigner, written by American playwright Larry Shue, comes to the Interplayers stage under director Carrie Morgan, and is rich with the humor that results when white lies lead us astray.
