Theatre for Grownups
DON’T DRINK THE WATER
By Woody Allen
Directed by Aaron Murphy
October 28 – November 12, 2016
When New Jersey caterer Walter Hollander takes a picture of the wrong location while visiting cold war Eastern Europe, he and his family find themselves pursued by the state police and seeking sanctuary in the American embassy. Woody Allen brings his signature brand of humor to a motley assortment of characters in this oddball comedy.
With all the current US/Russian tensions in the news, this very first production by Woody Allen is just as relevant, and just as funny today, as it was when it opened in 1966 and became a Broadway hit.

At the dawn of the 20th Century, two teams of brave explorers raced to be the first to reach the coldest, most remote place on Earth – South Pole. The Norwegian team used sled dogs. The British team walked. Only one team came back.
This is the story of the team that did not return.
Terra Nova explores the resilience of the human spirit under the harshest conditions imaginable.
