GVT mounts production of ‘The Foreigner’

Greenbrier Valley Theatre continues its summer theatrical season with “The Foreigner” by Larry Shue.

The play is set in a rural Georgia fishing lodge where Englishman Charlie Baker is taken by old Army buddy Froggy Le-Sueur. The shy Baker wishes to avoid any attention from the strangers in the lodge. LeSueur’s solution is to introduce him as a non-English-speaking “foreigner.”

This move, however, ensures a turn for the absurd to Baker’s stay, as he soon finds himself overhearing a series of scandals by the very locals he had hoped to avoid, who believe he can’t understand them.

The two-act comedy will continue to run July 25-27 and Aug. 1-3 at 7:30 p.m.; a matinee performance is scheduled at 2 p.m. July 27. Tickets are $24 for adults, $21 for seniors and $15 for students and children.

For tickets or more information, call the GVT Box Office at 304-645-3838.
