The setting of this classic comedy is a fishing lodge in rural Georgia often visited by Sgt. “Froggy” LeSeur, 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. Froggy, before departing, tells all assembled at the lodge 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 mysterious plans of a suspicious minister and his redneck associate; secrets of the minister’s pretty fiancee; and other damaging revelations made with the thought that Charlie doesn’t understand a word being said. This little white lie fuels the nonstop hilarity of the play and sets up the wild climax in which things go uproariously awry for the “bad guys” and the “good guys” emerge triumphant.
