An inventive comic romp, The Foreigner is set in a fishing lodge in rural Georgia and tells the story of a pathologically shy young man named Charlie who pretends that he can’t speak English in order to avoid making conversation with strangers. Eventually the other guests decide to air their secrets around Charlie – many 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.

Antony and Cleopatra by William Shakespeare
Directed and adapted by Jonathan Gonzalez
Shakespeare at the Pearl continues with the original celebrity couple: Antony and Cleopatra. Long before Brangelina this pair of star-crossed lovers traveled from Rome to Egypt and all parts in between with a blend of passion, lust, betrayal, power, tragedy, and double-crossing that only Shakespeare could create!
We are seeking a cast of 14-17 actors to bring this epic tale to life, The rehearsal process will include ensemble physical training, Shakespeare imagery work, and exercises throughout the process. No Shakespeare experience necessary to be in the production! Continuing in the tradition of the Pearl's productions of MACBETH, A WINTER'S TALE, and ROMEO AND JULIET, the show promises to provide an intimate, energetic, and innovative experience.
