DON'T DRINK THE WATER 
by Woody Allen
Presented on July 30, 31 August 1, August 6-8, August 13-15, 1998

A cascade of comedy and a solid year's hit on Broadway, this affair takes place inside an American embassy behind the Iron Curtain. An American tourist, a caterer by trade, and his family of wife and daughter rush into the embassy two steps ahead of the police who suspect them of spying and picture-taking. But 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.

"Moved the audience to great laughter . . . Allen's imagination is daffy, his sense of the ridiculous is keen and gags snap, crackle and pop."--N.Y. Daily News.

"It is filled with funny lines . . . Bright and hilarious dialogue."--N.Y. Post.
