“The Foreigner” Opens at Home Made Theater This Weekend [Berkshire on Stage]
Home Made Theater closes out their 32nd season with Larry Shue’s comedy The Foreigner. The show runs weekends from Saturday (April 22) through Sunday, May 7 at SPAC’s Spa Little Theater in the Saratoga Spa State Park.
Charlie Baker (Nick Casey) is a painfully shy Englishman who’s terrified of conversation – with anyone. So when he’s dropped off at Betty Meeks’ (Debra Bercier) rural Georgia hunting lodge for a few days of peace and quiet, the local inhabitants are told that Charlie can’t speak or understand a word of English. This puts Charlie in the interesting position of overhearing more than he should. The Foreigner humorously barrels along and explodes in a wildly funny climax.
The director of The Foreigner is Patrick White, who is making his HMT directing debut. Past local directing credits include The Pope & The Witch, Suddenly, Last Summer and Grand Concourse at Albany Civic Theater; Clever Little Lies and Living on Love at Latham’s Curtain Call Theatre; The Glass Menagerie at Our Own Productions; and Rapture, Blister, Burn at Schenectady Civic Players.
