The Only Way is Downton comes to The Atkinson


This is Downton Abbey as you’ve never seen it before! Direct from a West End run and American tour, Luke Kempner’s tour-de-force impressions comedy returns to the UK, in an updated version featuring new material. This is essential viewing just as the final series draws to a close.

Written and performed by Luke Kempner
Directed by Owen Lewis
Script edited by Jeremy Limb

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!

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 in both 2013 and 2014.

‘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 sheer joy… the capacity audience loved every minute.’ ***** British Theatre
