PORTAL PLAYERS DRAMATIC SOCIETY PROUDLY PRESENTS:
Directed by Chris Arthurs; produced by Megan Arthurs.
On-stage veteran Chris Arthurs directs this ensemble comedy which includes audience favourites Terry Switzer, Nathan Satterlee, Cody Taylor, Belinda Williams, Shawn Standley, Randy Humchitt, and newcomer to the Capitol Theatre stage Holly Wilbee.
The scene is a fishing lodge in rural Georgia often visited by "Froggy" LeSeuer, a British demolition expert who occasionally runs training sessions at a nearby army base. This time "Froggy" has brought along a friend, a pathologically shy young man named Charlie who is overcome with fear at the thought of making conversation with strangers. So "Froggy," before departing, tells all assembled that Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and speaks no English. Once alone the fun really begins...
Winner of two Obie Awards and two Outer Critics Circle Awards as Best New American Play and Best Off-Broadway Production.
Based on what the NY Post describes as a "devilishly clever idea," the play demonstrates what can happen when a group of devious characters must deal with a stranger who (they think) knows no English.
