The

FOREIGNER Written by Larry Shue

In a fishing lodge in rural Georgia a shy young man named Charlie pretends that he can't speak English in order to avoid making conversation with strangers. Nonstop hilarity ensues when the local residents assume he doesn’t understand a word. This sets up a rollercoaster of events which end in a wildly funny climax where things go awry for the bad guys and the good guys triumph.
