Description:
Welcome to Downtrodden Abbey, where a battle for the deed to the property is waged between legitimate aristocrats and literal pretenders to the throne. The Crawfish family - Marry, Supple, Enid, Lady Flora, and Lord Roderick - are content wiling their days away with naughty charades and twenty-two course dinners until the sinking of the Gigantic takes down the next in line to inherit Downtrodden. Soon, cousin Isabich and her son, Atchew, the rightful heir to the Abbey, arrive to claim what's theirs. Downstairs, the servants are running amok, as crippled weakling Brace is aggressively courted by teen hottie Nana, and lady's maid 'Potatoes' O'Grotten and her flamboyant sidekick, Tomaine, cause trouble for at every turn. The ensuing, insufferably overwrought melodrama takes the reader upstairs and downstairs, into parlours and drawing rooms, boudoirs and bathrooms, and across every class - from the classiest to the classless - in the social pecking order of Edwardian England. Uproariously funny, with a wicked sense of humour that Downton Abbey diehards will enjoy, Gillians Fetlocks skewers your favourite characters with panache in this winning parody.
