The scene is a fishing lodge in rural Georgia owned by Betty, (Bonnie Rohn) and often visited by "Froggy" LeSeuer, (Gary Rohn) 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 (James Dragolovich) 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, Rev. David (Jon Weisse) and his redneck associate Owen (Phil Birdener); the fact that the minister's pretty fiancée Catherine (Liz Leighton) 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 as Catherine’s slow witted brother Ellard, (Sean Duncan), tries to teach Charlie English, and sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go uproariously awry for the "bad guys," and the "good guys" emerge triumphant.
