Instructions for American Servicemen in Britain

Event information

'Don't call British pounds, shillings and pence 'funny money'.' 'Do not show off - or swank as the British call it.' 'Don't brag or bluster.' 'Don't eat too much.' 'NEVER criticise the King and Queen.' It's 1942 and our dear American cousins have just arrived in England - where the locals speak a strange dialect, boil all their food, and talk endlessly about the weather. The Americans see the Brits as a strange race. Get ready to judge for yourself in a night of joyous laughter and downright silliness as a crack team of experts explain the rules of Blighty life to the recently arrived GIs. ???? The Times ???? Sunday Times ???? Time Out Inspired by the pamphlet 'Instructions for American Servicemen, 1942', adapted with kind permission from the Bodleian Library's publication. ???? 'Consistently entertaining and often hilarious.' Exuent Magazine (on 'Winston On The Run') 'Consistently full on funny.' The Guardian (on 'Doctor Brown Because') ???? The Times, Sunday Times, The Independent, Time Out (on 'Doctor Brown Because')
