production is directed by Chris Gray, with assistant director
Anastasia James. It is about an English writer, Charlie Baker, who
has problems with social situations. His friend Froggy takes him to
a lodge and tells everyone that Charlie is a foreigner and has no
knowledge of the local language. When the neighbors and visitors
assume Charlie does not understand them, they start to say things
freely in front of him, causing hilarious yet dangerous results when
the invisible empire decides to teach the "foreigner" a lesson.
