Get in the mood for a good nights of laughs! What happens when an eccentric tour guide is assigned to the dullest house in England? After watching her groups dwindle with boredom, she begins to elaborate. As she adds wildly dramatic tales of murder and intrigue, she begins to receive ovations from her increasing audiences. Her success is cut short when the formidable head of the Preservation Trust shows up.
Lettice Douffet (Shana Dirik), an expert on medieval cuisine and weaponry, is a tour guide of Fustian House, the most boring stately home in Britain - until she begins to embellish her tours, which become more interesting as they stray further from the facts. Charlotte "Lotte" Schoen (Sarah DeLima), sent by the Preservation Trust to investigate, is not amused and fires her. But Charlotte's passion for history draws her to Lettice's romantic world-view and the two women forge an unlikely friendship in the face of their dreary modern lives and hilarity ensues. Others in the cast include Angela Smith, Mike Levesque.
