Instructions for American Serviceman in Britain: A Comedy
This very funny show has proved a great hit - take a look at the trailer video to give you a flavour of what everyone is talking about. Click here to view
It’s 1942 and a horde of Yankee servicemen (to be played by you - the audience) have landed in deepest darkest rural England and they're confused by the ways and customs of their hosts. Everyone speaks funny, boils their food into oblivion and goes on endlessly about the weather. In comes a crack team of experts to brief them on the rules of British life - but the experts (Americans who've only just arrived themselves and English officers who think they know it all) are just as bad as their students, and proceed to confuse all and sundry.
The show has been written in conjunction with The Real MacGuffins, a trio of sketch comedians whose TV credits include BBC’s ‘The Bleak Old Shop of Stuff’, ‘The Royal Bodyguard’, ‘Lee Nelson’s Well Funny People’, ‘Miranda’ and Sky1’s BAFTA winning ‘Spy’. And so from the start this show has a twinkle in its eye and gives a knowing wink to the audience.
This performance is supported by the Live & Local - Shindig scheme (funded by Worcestershire County Council and Wyre Forest District Council).
