Comments on: Disrobing “The Foreigner” at a Minnesota High School http://www.artsintegrity.org/disrobing-the-foreigner-at-a-minnesota-high-school/ in partnership with the New School Sat, 19 Aug 2017 10:59:45 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.7.7 By: Rick Anderson http://www.artsintegrity.org/disrobing-the-foreigner-at-a-minnesota-high-school/#comment-106 Wed, 29 Mar 2017 17:25:00 +0000 http://www.artsintegrity.org/?p=767#comment-106 I appeared in this play 30 years ago when folks weren’t nearly so offended by every single word that comes out of one’s mouth. Put the photo back into context and you will find that the KKK is villified as the ignorant, racist, superstitious morons that they truly are. I can’t think of a better example of showing this than “The Foreigner”. Lighten up and learn.

It’s ridiculous to raise these crazy objections at the eleventh hour. Read the show, know what (if any) objectionable content there is, and either don’t approve it or put the content in perspective with the message of the show. And let the show go on!
