30 by Ninety Theatre in Mandeville presents THE FOREIGNER, a comedy by Larry Shue. Directed by Evette Randolph, the cast includes Tom Hassinger, Amy Riddell, Ladson Poole, Dawn Mastascuso, Nino Bonura, Jr., Jeff Hogg and Jason Leader.
The story takes place in a fishing lodge in rural Tilghman County, Georgia where two Englishmen, Froggy and Charlie, arrive as guests. The shy Charlie agreed to accompany Froggy on the trip after his sick wife begged him to go. When people at the lodge try to talk to Charlie, however, he remains silent: he is terribly shy, depressed about his wife’s illness, and cannot find the words to reply. Froggy claims that Charlie cannot talk because he is a “foreigner” from an exotic country, and does not understand English. Taking the explanation that he’s a non-English speaker as fact, the lodge’s guests quickly begin revealing their secrets, and Charlie soon discovers scandals amongst some of the residents of the lodge. Get ready for lots of laughs!
THE FOREIGNER is on stage February 17 through March 4. Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm, Sundays at 2:30PM. Admission is $21 for adults, $19 for ages 65+ and military and $16 for students. 30 by Ninety is a reserved-seating venue.
