“The Foreigner” tells the hilarious story of a shy Englishman who comes to a lodge in Georgia and pretends to be from an exotic country, unable to speak English so he won’t have to talk to the locals. The result brings about misunderstandings and madcap mayhem.
Roles open include: “Froggy” LeSueur: British demolition expert; regular visitor to the lodge and friend to Charlie (30s to 50s; British accent). Charlie Baker: the “Foreigner;” also British, very shy and overcome with fear at the thought of making conversation with strangers; some physical comedy (30s to 40s; British accent and able to do a fake accent of unknown origin). Betty Meeks: owner of the lodge; wise about some things and naïve about others (50s and older; “country” Southern accent). Rev. David Marshall Lee: clergyman and a “regular fella”; seems like a good guy, but is he? (30s to 40s; Southern accent). Catherine Simms: girlfriend to David and older sister to Ellard; (20s to 30s; Southern accent). Owen Musser: a “bad guy” and local redneck and bigot; (30s and older; “country” Southern accent). Ellard Simms: younger brother of Catherine; appears “backwards or slow”, he is sweet and blossoms with Charlie’s help (18 to 20s; thick southern accent).
