A COMEDY OF MANORS
DOWNTON ABBEY meets NOISES OFF in this laugh-a-minute farce of stately proportions.
By Zoe Samuel
Directed by Benjamin Kamine
When the old Earl of Whitelingham dies, leaving debts in the millions and an estate about to foreclose, the family tries to save its future by doing what anyone would do: stealing a priceless (and hideous) painting and selling it on the black market. The only problem? Everyone thinks they’re working alone and no one knows which painting to steal. In just a single afternoon, countless identities are mistaken, crazy cats are hunted, paintings are set on fire (and maybe the cat too), and one accidental murder could save the day in this hysterical modern farce that will keep you laughing until the very end.
