Downton Drama at @theatreatmill

On 23 January, Theatre at The Mill presents THE ONLY WAY IS DOWNTON, written and performed by Luke Kempner and produced by Seabright Productions.

Following a sell-out run Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2013 and a West End season, impressionist Luke Kempner (star of YouTube hit Downstairs At Downton and West End shows Les Mis and Avenue Q) brings his solo show The Only Way is Downton to Newtownabbey.

‘A fine impressionist, giving a splendid display of Downtonry.’ Stephen Fry

As celebrities start appearing at the Abbey, cultures clash and eras hilariously collide in this brilliant new parody. Building on the multi-character original scenario of his YouTube video, Luke has created an original story in which the characters of Downton Abbey are in crisis and have to call upon modern celebrities in their appeal to save the Dowager’s country pile from certain closure.

Writer/performer Luke Kempner has recently appeared in Sleeping Beauty for Salisbury Playhouse, the UK tour of South Pacific, LIFT at the Soho Theatre, the UK tours of Avenue Q and Les Miserables, directed by Laurence Connor. Luke is a graduate of the Guildford School of Acting.
