Don't Drink the Water

by Woody Allen

Presented March 2005 at the Norway Grange
Sponsored by The Lake Store and Rupert & Suzanne Grover.

Directed by Kenn Sawyer.

A cascade of comedy and a solid hit of Broadway, this affair takes place inside an American embassy behind the Iron Curtain (circa 1963).

An American tourist, a caterer by trade, and his wife and daughter rush into the embassy two steps ahead of the communist police who suspect them of spying and picture taking. It's not much of a refuge, for the ambassador is absent and his son, now in charge, has been expelled from a dozen countries and the continent of Africa. Nevertheless, they carefully and frantically plot their escape, and the ambassador’s son and the caterer's daughter even have time to fall in love.
