Director Sari Ketter returns to the Idaho Shakespeare Festival for “The Foreigner,” which opens this weekend.

It’s a wacky, Obie Award-winning romp from playwright Larry Shue. Charlie Baker needs to get away. His friend Froggy takes him to his favorite Georgia fishing lodge. To get Charlie some much-needed peace, Froggy convinces the locals that his friend is a foreign visitor who doesn’t understand English.

As Charlie finds himself privy to secrets and scandals discussed in front of him, he becomes the hero in an outrageously funny climax.
