Instructions for American Servicemen in Britain

"The British don't know how to make a good cup of coffee. You don't know how to make a good cup of tea. It's an even swap."

It's 1942 and a horde of Yankee servicemen have arrived in England - where the locals speak a strange dialect, boil all their food, and talk endlessly about the weather.

Issued in 1942 by the American War Office, the pamphlet 'Instructions for American Servicemen in Britain' aimed to prepare GIs for their new home and defuse Nazi propaganda attempts to split the allies.

The Americans see the Brits as a strange race. Get ready to judge for yourself in a show full of joyous laughter and downright silliness as a crack team of experts explain the rules of British life to their bewildered American cousins.

This rib-tickling new show for adults and families is from the creators of Winston On the Run and Dr Brown Because.
