A hilarious parody on Downton Abbey
Sept 30 – Oct 18
This is Downton Abbey as you’ve never seen it before! Direct from a West End run and extensive US tour, Luke Kempner’s tour-de-force impressions comedy comes to Canada for the first time in this strictly limited three-week engagement. Essential viewing ahead of the final series of the beloved TV drama.

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!

Nov 14 – Dec 6
Four aspiring young writers have paid big bucks to seek wisdom at the feet of the fearsome Leonard—once a celebrated novelist, now a cantankerous editor, teacher and grandstanding chronicler of third-world war zones.

Under Leonard’s recklessly brilliant but brutally unorthodox teaching style, competition for his approval is intense. Alliances are made and broken, tactical schemes are hatched—how far are the students willing to go to make it to the top?

Tom McManus Pulitzer Prize-nominee Theresa Rebeck’s mordant comedy is a sparkling cocktail of ambition, power and lust—and one with an unexpected kick. Theresa is the creator of the hit television series Smash and her previous plays include Dead Accounts and Mauritius. Stratford Shakespeare Festival star Tom McCamus plays Leonard in this new production.
