"The Foreigner", Garland

Waiting List Only at this time. Please contact Jessica at

admin@tialumni.org to be added to the list.

This is a funny, two-act comedy which takes place in a fishing lodge in rural Georgia where Sgt. “Froggy” LeSueur has dragged his depressed and socially awkward friend, Charlie. Froggy has business with the bomb squad at the nearby army training base and Charlie’s wife has less than six months to live so she requested that Froggy take Charlie with him to America. Charlie believes that his wife wants him gone - not because she doesn’t want him to see her sick in bed - but because she is bored of him. (And, actually, the fact that she has had 23 affairs backs up his belief.) When people at the lodge try to talk to Charlie, however, he remains silent: he is terribly shy and cannot find the words to reply. Froggy claims that Charlie cannot talk because he is a "foreigner" from an exotic country, and does not understand English. With that explanation the lodge's guests quickly begin revealing their secrets, and Charlie soon discovers scandals amongst some of the residents of the lodge.  We will meet at Dos Banderas, 614 Main Street in downtown Garland, for a great Tex-Mex dinner (on our own) at 6:00 pm and attend the 8:00 performance.  Cost will be $13 for members and $15 for nonmembers.  Please make your reservations early since we only have a limited number of tickets.
