Need a cure for DOWNTON ABBEY withdrawal? Look no further than Afternoon Tea’s presentation of GOSFORD PARK, when you can get your fix of ridiculously wealthy people, servant politics, fancy estates, polite intrigue and, most importantly, some Maggie Smith sass. Set in 1932, Robert Altman’s gorgeous murder mystery is packed with the classiest actors in Hollywood, from the dead sexy Clive Owen to the elegant Kristin Scott Thomas, and the plot is just as juicy as the British treats you’ll be enjoying along with three courses of tea. Sip and nibble your way through this richly clever whodunit as scandalous secrets from upstairs and downstairs are revealed. Everyone is a suspect, and their motives form an extravagant web that will keep you happily trapped for the afternoon. Bring your appetite and your best detective skills, and see if you can beat the bumbling Inspector Thompson (Stephen Fry) to the truth. Hint: You probably can. (Sarah Pitre)
Your ticket includes a plate of delicious treats and three courses of tea provided by Austin's own Zhi Tea!
