by Larry Shue

Froggy, a British demolition expert, brings his pathologically shy friend Charlie to visit a lodge in rural Georgia. As Froggy heads off for a training session, he tells everyone that Charlie is from an exotic country and speaks no English.

You never know what’s going to be revealed next in this uproarious farce from Milwaukee’s own Larry Shue.
