Some Americans Abroad By Richard Nelson
A bitter comedy about the inner office politics during a college English department's annual "spring break study abroad trip", the course work includes viewing 28 plays in just three and a half weeks, plenty of double dealings, disloyalty and reckless accusations.
The London production of this show received an Olivier Award nomination for Comedy of the Year (1989) and in New York it won the Drama Desk Award for best play (1990).
It is the kind of show that strives to inspire both laughter and thought.
