The Real MacGuffins in London town….

‘Instructions for American Servicemen in Britain’ the hit show from the Real MacGuffins and Fol Espoir is back!

It’s a rib-tickling new comedy that has been reducing audiences to silliness all over the country and after two national tours in 2015 and 2016 it comes to London in July 2017.

If you’re looking for a great night out in central London, look no further than this critically acclaimed London theatre show, highly recommended by audience members young and old. A rip-roaring comedy for all age-groups, a delight for American tourists and Britishers alike, this hilarious comedy has been entertaining audiences across the country. Now it comes to London’s Jermyn Street Theatre, located just a few steps away from Piccadilly Circus, one of London’s most famous landmarks, with a wide selection of restaurants nearby for a pre- or post-theatre meal, or maybe just a good, old-fashioned cup of tea.
