Perma-tanned TV reality show fame-seekers clash with period drama dowager duchesses in a hilarious take on popular culture.
Having made his name with YouTube hit Downstairs At Downton, and appearances in musicals including Les Mis and Avenue Q, impressionist Luke Kempner’s debut solo show won critical acclaim and sell-out audiences at the Edinburgh Fringe last year.
As celebrities start appearing at the Abbey, cultures clash and eras hilariously collide in this brilliant new parody, which takes in many other popular TV shows and familiar modern voices to help the cast of Downton save the estate from financial ruin – again!
