In an unnamed country behind the Iron Curtain, the American ambassador leaves the embassy for business, placing his inept son in charge. Almost immediately the embassy is thrust into a zany series of comic crises when a family of tourists seeks asylum in Don’t Drink the Water, a slapstick farce about a New Jersey family held captive in the American embassy during the Cold War.  Featuring author Woody Allen’s trademark offbeat humor, Don’t Drink the Water first appeared as a part of Forge’s 24th season.

Directed by Jim Kelsh

 Jim has been a member since 1983.  His first Forge show was GUYS AND DOLLS.
