Madcap Misadventures & Subterfuge

All Charlie wanted was a little peace and quiet. So when he arrives at a fishing lodge in Georgia, it seems harmless enough to masquerade as a foreigner who can’t speak English. He soon realizes, however, that people will say the most extraordinary things when they think no one can understand them, and what seemed like a serene getaway suddenly turns into a hive of drama and intrigue. An award-winning comedic farce, The Foreigner is both scrupulously clever and outrageously funny.

    Village Theatre's 'Foreigner': Bring on the laughs Herald Net

    "Disturbingly Amusing" Heed the Hedonist

    "Despite his soaring career, Seattle theatergoers are lucky that Yorkey is never a foreigner to the Village, no matter how much he has going on." Encore

    "... is a not inconsiderable compliment to say that this Village Theatre production, directed by Brian Yorkey, makes it all feel fresh and original. The laughs are abundant, but it is really the witty combination of silly invention and a serious message about the difficulty of people communicating with one another that gives this play its enduring appeal. An especially accomplished cast, headed by the delightful Erik Gratton as Charlie, takes us to a Georgia retreat that we will never really forget." Seattle Actor

    "The Village production is a showcase for the amazingly versatile Erik Gratton." The Daily Record

    "Village Theatre’s current production directed by Brian Yorkey is fresh, and presents a cast that knows how to work a script for its laughs." The Seattle Times

    Village Theatre’s ‘Foreigner’ feels like an old friend Issaquah Press

    "Brian Yorkey's expert direction kept the action fast-paced and the drama well-balanced. The entire production seemed to fly by and there was never a moment of confusion in the handling of these seriously confused characters." Seattle Actor

    The production is charming and hilarious with plenty of belly laughs for all but also manages to have a brain. Yorkey's staging of the piece is wonderful with subtle nuances and character quirks that only add to the honesty and believability of the show. And with that gorgeously detailed set from Matthew Smucker, the world is quite complete. Broadway World

    "Gratton (Charlie) and Anthony Lee Phillips (as Ellard, Charlie’s would-be English tutor) demonstrate bits of brilliance during their engaging educational encounters. An inspired mirror-mimicking scene between them brought down the house." Seattle Weekly

    “The Foreigner” and “The Nerd,” two popular farces by the late Larry Shue, a sci-fi rom-com and an adoption drama are opening at theaters in the Seattle area the last week of January. The Seattle Times

    Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Brian Yorkey directs Larry Shue's The Foreigner in his hometown of Issaquah, WA. Playbill

    “I always love to work here,” Pulitzer prize winner Brian Yorkey said of Issaquah and Village Theatre. “This is home to me. Also, it’s a play I’ve loved since I was a teenager.” Issaquah Press
