The frantic farce of The Foreigner'

UMaine summer theatre kicks off third season

ORONO The University of Maine Summer Music Theatre Festival is back with their 2012 season.

This season debuts with 'The Foreigner' by Larry Shue. The production is actually a collaboration between UMSMTF and Bangor Community Theatre. Performances are at the Cyrus Pavilion Theatre on the University of Maine campus and run through June 17.

Charlie Baker is a bit of a dull guy nice, but dull. Charlie's friend Froggy LeSueur is a British explosives expert who occasionally comes to the U.S. to run training sessions. Froggy brings Charlie along with him on one of these jaunts, putting him up in a rural fishing lodge in Georgia.

However, Froggy must tend to his duties and leave Charlie alone at the lodge, which serve only to exacerbate Charlie's feelings of shyness. In an attempt to help his friend, Froggy tells Betty, the lodge owner, that Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and neither speaks nor understands English.
