‘The Foreigner’ Brings Loads Of Laughs

Zany antics and hilarity have audiences at The Kansas City Repertory Theatre abuzz.

Currently in previews and set to open Oct. 18, “The Foreigner” is the award-winning comedy written by Larry Shue that has Kansas Citians talking.

Charlie Baker needs to get away, and his friend Froggy knows just the place – his favorite fishing lodge in rural Georgia.

To give Charlie much needed peace and quiet, Froggy convinces the locals Charlie doesn’t understand English. But the plan backfires when the lodge’s inhabitants reveal deep secrets and diabolical plans in front of their quiet foreign guest. Nonstop hilarity ensues and builds to an outrageously funny climax in this wild and wacky comedy.
