A renowned Russian scholar is forced to test his own intercultural theories in real life when he immigrates to the United States. Can he survive in the wild, among these mysterious species he studied, The Americans? Through painful culture shock and endless missteps, the awkward professor desperately tries to understand: what do The Americans want, how do they think, and why do they always smile? In this humorous solo show, award-winning author and performer Sufian Zhemukhov will have you reevaluate what you thought you knew about The Americans.
