The comedy "The Foreigner," by Larry Shue, will be presented May 6, 7, 13, 14 and 15 at the Fly Arts Center on South Main Street. The play is about Charlie Baker (played by Aaron Gaines), a depressed man whose friend Froggy (Cory Flippo) brings him to a hunting lodge in Georgia. In order to give him some space, Froggy tells lodge owner Betty (Laura Archambault) that Charlie is a foreigner who speaks no English. Betty and others at the lodge talk openly around Charlie, since they think he can't understand them, and reveal both personal matters and nefarious plans. Other cast members are Daniel Shearon, Constance Seagraves, Zeb Swerske and John I. Carney. The play is directed by Tony Davis. Show times are 7 p.m. for Friday and Saturday performances, 2 p.m. for the May 15 matinee. Tickets are $10 and $12 depending on location. To make reservations, call 931-684-8359 and leave a message.
