BIG INTERVIEW Jan Ravens: 'If you become part of the establishment then you lose your edge'

Have your say

A hilarious story of mistaken identity comes to the Spring next month.

The Foreigner by American playwright Larry Shue follows the dull and doleful Charlie Baker who, trying to forget his marital problems, takes a fishing-lodge holiday in the deep south of America.

Charlie just wants to be left alone so to avoid being pestered by the locals he pretends that he is a foreigner who speaks no English. Unfortunately for Charlie this leads him to become involved in a series of bizarre events featuring a corrupt preacher, his pregnant girlfriend, her none-too-bright kid brother and the local branch of the Ku Klux Klan.

The Foreigner is presented by senior members of the Havant Dynamo Youth Theatre from September 3–6 at the Spring Arts and Heritage Centre, Havant at 7.30pm.

Tickets: £9, concessions £7. Call (023) 9247 2700 or visit
