Direct from a West End season comes this first national tour of Luke Kempner’s tour-de-force impressions comedy.

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.

Having made his name with YouTube hit Downstairs At Downton, and appearances in musicals including Les Mis and Avenue Q, Kempner’s debut solo show won critical acclaim and sell-out audiences at the Edinburgh Fringe last year.

“Remarkable, tour de force one-man show. If this doesn’t prove a wow in Edinburgh and beyond, then I’m Dame Maggie Smith.”– Daily Telegraph

“A tightly written and performed mash-up of the saga with modern TV hits. An affectionate spoof.” – Independent on Sunday

“A fine impressionist, giving a splendid display of Downtonry.”– Stephen Fry
