Hillbarn Theatre, the Peninsula's premier theatre company, continues its 2017–18 season with Larry Shue’s award–winning comedy, The Foreigner (October 5–22, 2017).

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. Taking the explanation that he's a non-English speaker as fact, the lodge's guests quickly begin revealing their secrets, and Charlie soon discovers scandals amongst some of the residents of the lodge. The winner of two Obie Awards and two Outer Critics Circle Awards, The Foreigner is “a constant invitation to relax and laugh at the foolishness of life” (Village Voice).
