NEXT SHOW The setting for the next production at Iowa River Players in Rowan is “an American embassy in a country somewhere firmly behind the Iron Curtain” in the mid 1960’s. What may not seem like a comical place to most of us becomes hilarious when written by the hand of comedic playwright Woody Allen.

CHEAP SEATS! This show features special “Cold War” prices!! General admission just $5 with all student tickets priced at $1. No advanced tickets sold for this show, only available at box office one hour before curtain.
HERE’S THE STORY Zach Reed directs this “bungled international affair” involving an American family, Walter and Marian Hollander and their lovely daughter Susan, on vacation in Europe. Quite by accident while snapping some photos in a restricted area, Mr. Hollander endangers himself, his wife and daughter. A caterer by trade, he is mistaken by the Communists for an international spy and the family must seek refuge in the US Embassy.
Ambassador Magee has left his incompetent son, Axel, in charge. Trust that nothing will go right until the end. And count on fun characters, strange visitors and a romantic ending!
