About this show

Chicago-born Richard Nelson's scathing comedy pokes fun at Americans' romanticizing of all things English, while probing the dark side of university politics. Seven English professors and their students take an obsessive-compulsive playgoing tour of England. Their cultural high-mindedness and snobbery about other Americans is exposed by hypocrisy when a series of amoral encounters nearly sabotage the trip. First produced by The Royal Shakespeare Company in 1989, this production marks the professional Chicago premiere of Some Americans Abroad.
