"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 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 attempt to explain the rules of British life. A rib-tickling show for all ages.

???? The Stage

“Wholly idiotic, inducing a helpless laughter that almost incapacitates the audience… an unforgettable experience.”

???? Essential Surrey

“Packed with puns and innuendo, the slickness and pace of this brilliant group made it great fun for all age groups… A thoroughly entertaining evening.”
