THE STORY: The scene is a fishing lodge in rural Georgia often visited by "Froggy" LeSeuer, a British demolition expert who occasionally runs training sessions at a nearby army base. This time "Froggy" has brought along a friend, a pathologically shy young man named Charlie who is overcome with fear at the thought of making conversation with strangers. So "Froggy," before departing, tells all assembled that Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and speaks no English, inadvertently making Charlie the hottest thing to hit town since Sherman's march to the sea. Before long, Charlie finds himself privy to assorted secrets, scandals, and insidious plots, all freely discussed in his presence with the thought that Charlie doesn't understand a word being said. That he does fuels the nonstop hilarity of the play and sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go uproariously awry for the "bad guys," and the "good guys" emerge triumphant.

The Character breakdown is as follows:

 Charlie Baker – Shy, dull, morose (initially). A meek proofreader for a science fiction magazine, he has a merrily adulterous wife whom he is unconditionally, intensely, and tiresomely (in her assessment) devoted to. 

S/Sgt. "Froggy" LeSeur – a cheerful British Army man who teaches the use of explosives. "Froggy" fancies himself a dashing man-of-the-world.

Betty Meeks – an elderly widow who owns a resort lodge and mothers her guests. 

Rev. David Marshall Lee – Friendly, sincere, genuinely decent, kind, and patient;  ".... a good young man to have on our side." However, David has a secret agenda.

Catherine Simms – A former debutante and the heiress of a huge fortune; a bit spoiled. Engaged to the "good Reverend."

Ellard Simms – Catherine's apparently dim-witted, extremely insecure brother; heir to half the family money if Catherine decides he is "smart enough to handle it."

Owen Musser – Mean-spirited, ignorant, volatile, superstitious and extremely prejudiced against anyone who doesn't fit his ideal of ‘‘Christian, white America’’
