This comedy takes place at a rural lodge in Georgia, where shy Englishman Charlie convinces the locals that he cannot understand English. Soon he overhears a plot involving no less than the Ku Klux Klan. Charlie must overcome his paralyzing shyness in order to protect the people he has come to love. This play involves a climactic special effect when a Klan member appears to melt into the floor, leaving behind his robe and cap. After many trials, we developed a costume that met this need and left the audience roaring with laughter.
