The Real MacGuffins & Fol Espoir – Instructions for American Servicemen in Britain
April 3, 2015 @ 5:45 pm£5 – £8
The Real MacGuffins return with a brand new show!
“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.” Inspired by the 1942 pamphlet given to American soldiers on their way to Blighty, the Instructions were a crash course on the quirks and customs of British life, featuring everything from cricket, warm beer and ha’pennies to Sunday afternoons in the country.
With lashings of physical comedy, this rib-tickling new show for adults and families will lovingly poke fun at British eccentricities and the doomed attempts of outsiders to understand them. 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.
The Real MacGuffins have proved a crowd favourite at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival since 2010 playing sell-out shows to critical acclaim. Their highly energetic, interactive comedy delights audiences both young and old – with a mix of wordplay, good (and some bad) old fashioned jokes and physical comedy, there is something for everyone.
Fol Espoir are the creators of ‘Winston On the Run’ (***** WhatsOnStage) and ‘Dr Brown Because’ (**** The Times, The Sunday Times, Time Out).
“Incredibly silly and funny … these are three very talented performers whose comedy dynamic adds a nice extra layer to the show.” – Kate Copstick, The Scotsman
