Set in a rural fishing lodge often visited by "Froggy" LeSeuer, a British demolitions expert from a nearby Army base. This time, Froggy has brought along a friend: a pathologically shy man named Charlie who is overcome with fear at the idea of making conversation. So, before departing, Froggy tells everyone that Charlie is from a foreign country and speaks no English. Assuming he can't understand, the fun really begins as Charlie overhears more than he should, like the evil plans of a sinister, hypocritical minister and his redneck associate and other damaging revelations. The fact that he does fuels the nonstop hilarity of the play and sets up the wildly unpredictable climax.
