SANDWICH — The Sandwich Players Spring Production "Don't Drink the Water" will be performed May 23, 24, 30, 31 at 7 p.m. with a matinee May 25 at 2 p.m. at the Sandwich Town Hall.
Tickets at the door are $10, $5 for students.
Ben Bullard is directing an enthusiastic cast of characters in the hilarious Woody Allen comedy of the 60's, "Don't Drink the Water". The Hollander family: husband, wife and 23 year old Susan are on vacation from New Jersey somewhere behind the Iron Curtain. Walter, Mr. Hollander, has unintentionally taken some pictures of a restricted area. Chaos ensues. They find refuge in the American Embassy run by an efficient and effective Ambassador. However, the Ambassador's not so capable son, Magee, has been left in charge during the Ambassador's absence.
You are introduced to Act 1 by Father Drobney, an eccentric priest; who has been in refuge at the embassy for 6 years. A multitude of side splitting characters add to the pace and hilarity of this play, as well as an unexpected romance. You will be tossed between the actions of a temperamental chef, a crafty and ambitious secretary who wants Magee's position, the vicious head of the secret police, a Sultana and his wife – insulted by the unabashed opinions of Mr. Hollander, the Embassy support staff, and of course you, the audience.
Don't miss the entertaining flamboyant talents of this sensational production. For more information contact the Sandwich Players at 284-6897.
