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. Once alone the fun really begins, as Charlie overhears more than he
should—the evil plans of a sinister, two-faced minister and his redneck associate; the
fact that the minister's pretty fiancée is pregnant; and many other damaging revelations
made 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.
