DUMMERSTON- The Vermont Theatre Company presents “Don’t Drink the Water,” Woody Allen’s first and possibly funniest play, the first two weekends in May at the Evening Star Grange.

“Don’t Drink the Water” is the hilarious story of an American family from New Jersey on vacation in a country behind the Iron Curtain who find themselves in hotwater when the father accidentally takes a picture of a military installation.

They rush into the nearby American Embassy two steps ahead of the police, who suspect them of spying, but, as it turns out, the embassy isn’t much of a refuge when they find that the ambassador is absent and his totally incompetent son is in charge.

A large crowd gathers outside the embassy demanding the arrest of the family while a volatile flustered cook, a crackpot priest who thinks he’s a magician, and a punctilious assistant to the ambassador provide a mayhem-laden and laugh-filled backdrop to the family’s frantic attempt to escape. Mayhem and lots of laughs ensue in the process.

Do not miss this madcap tale by Woody Allen when he was funny. Make your reservations now, (802) 258-1344 or
