On the 75th Anniversary of VE Day, we're delighted to share our show “Instructions for American Servicemen in Britain”. The show toured all over the UK, and enjoyed sell-out runs in London and New York. We hope it gives you something to chuckle over while confined to barracks.
If you enjoy the video, please consider donating to Hospice UK's Covid-19 Crisis Appeal – helping to provide desperately needed support for patients, families and frontline hospice staff during this difficult time.
