An instant hit when it previewed and a sell out last year, The Real MacGuffins return with the touring show!

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, featuring everything from cricket, warm beer and ha'pennies to Sunday afternoons in the country.. A rib-tickling show for all ages.

"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." **** Essential Surrey

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.
