This year, the students will perform Woody Allens comedy, Dont Drink the Water (1966). In an Eastern European communist country, a family of tourists runs into the American embassy, chased closely by police who suspect them of spying. The family has taken pictures of what they thought was a cultural landmark but was actually a restricted government area! The American ambassador is gone and has left his bumbling son in charge. The son quickly turns the situation into an international crisis. Now if they ever want to return home, the family must find a way to escape the embassy without the communist police noticing. Dont Drink the Water is a zany and hilarious farce with classic Woody Allen wit.
