Comedy at HTC

At the Quogue Community Hall

    The Hampton Theatre Company is presenting Larry Shue’s comedy “The Foreigner” from next Thursday through March 30 at the Quogue Community Hall. The play is set at a backwoods fishing lodge in Georgia, where Froggy LeSeuer, a British munitions expert, brings his pathologically shy friend, Charlie. Confusion and comedy ensue when Froggy, to explain Charlie’s reticence, tells the other guests that his friend is from an exotic foreign country and neither speaks nor understands English.

    Sarah Hunnewell, the company’s executive director, will direct the production. The cast includes Matthew Conlon, Diana Marbury, James Ewing, Joe Pallister, Ben Schnickel, Terry Brockbank, and Catherine Simms. Showtimes are Thursdays and Fridays at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 for adults, $23 for senior citizens (except Saturday), and $10 for students under 21, and may be ordered from hamptontheatre.org.
