Elmwood Member to Produce “The Foreigner” at Barn Theatre

 In Other News

NOTE: This is NOT an Elmwood event

Elmwood member Omar Kozarsky will be producing “The Foreigner” at the Barn Theatre in Montville NJ. Auditions for “The Foreigner” will be Sunday, November 10, 2019 at 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM and Monday, November 11, 2019 at 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM

The scene is a fishing lodge in rural Georgia often visited by “Froggy” LeSueur, a British demolition expert who occasionally runs training sessions at a nearby army base. This time “Froggy” has brought along a friend, a pathologically shy young man named Charlie who is overcome with fear at the thought of making conversation with strangers. So “Froggy,” before departing, tells all assembled that Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and speaks no English. Once alone the fun really begins, as Charlie overhears more than he should—the evil plans of a sinister, two-faced minister and his redneck associate; the fact that the minister’s pretty fiancée is pregnant; and many other damaging revelations made with the thought that Charlie doesn’t understand a word being said. That he does fuels the nonstop hilarity of the play and sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go uproariously awry for the “bad guys,” and the “good guys” emerge triumphant.

Believe it or not, Elmwood has produced two different productions of “The Foreigner”. The first was back in 1989. “The Foreigner” then returned to the Elmwood stage back in 2011.
