The sell-out Edinburgh debut from impressionist Luke Kempner – star of YouTube hit Downstairs At Downton, Les Mis and Avenue Q. As celebrities start appearing at the Abbey, cultures clash and eras hilariously collide in this brilliant new parody.

Now touring in an extended two-act version (and in shorter versions by request).
