Local Theater

I saw a wonderful play last night at our local theater: “The Foreigner,” by Larry Shue. It’s about an English guy who goes to Georgia and is so shy that he pretends not to speak any English. The people around him then proceed to confide in him, say horrible things to him, and even “teach” him English, while he gabbles away in a strange gibberish of his own invention (with the occasional French or Swedish phrase thrown in). It was very clever and extremely funny, and it reminded me how much I love local theater. The actors may not be famous, but they are very talented, the sets are invariably amazing, and we always have a great time. If you’ve never been to a play at your local or repertory theater company, I highly recommend it. Broadway isn’t the only place to see a great play.
