The Michigan Carleton Club

invites you to

A Play and Dinner

Sunday, March 2, 2008, 2 p.m.

at the

Purple Rose Theatre

137 Park Street, Chelsea (see directions below)

Please join Carleton friends, parents and alums for a performance of Vina Veritas. This World Premiere comedy takes its title from the Latin proverb, which literally translated: "in wine, the truth," suggests that people reveal their truest feelings under the influence of alcohol. On Halloween night, two middle-aged couples prepare to attend a friend's annual party. Though the evening begins as usual, familiar traditions slowly unravel when the foursome shares a bottle of South American ceremonial wine made from the skin of blue dart tree frogs. Under the influence of this tribal truth serum, what follows is an unpredictable night of unbridled and shocking honesty that stretches the bounds of their friendship forever. After the play, please join us for dinner at the Common Grill, which is about one block from the theater.

Cost: $33 per ticket for the play (dinner is dutch treat)

We hope to see you there.
