The Foreigner was first presented at the Milwaukee (Wisconsin) Repertory Theatre in January of 1983. The play was written by Larry Shue. It opened on November 1984 at New York City's Astor Palace Theater, where it ran for 686 performances. The opening night cast included Shue, Anthony Heald, and Patricia Kalember. It eventually won two Obie Awards and two Outer Critics Circle Awards , including Best New American Play and Best Off-Broadway Production. Larry Shue died in a plane crash the following year, not living to see the continued popularity of The Foreigner. In 2004, the Roundabout Theatre Company revived the play, starring Matthew Broderick, Frances Sternhagen, and Neal Huff.
