The play about a painfully shy Brit taking a vacation in the remote Georgia woods — and pretending to not understand English — was recently revived Off-Broadway with Matthew Broderick in the title role. In Maine, the cast includes Moira Driscoll, Andrew Harris, James Noel Hoban, Mark Honan (in the title role), Daniel Noel, Jenn Thompson and Rufus Tureen. Performances continue to Feb. 20.
