Downton Abbey Expert Jessica Fellowes Heads To Stuart's Lyric Theatre For A Talk About The Popular PBS Series

You may have more in common with the characters from "Downton Abbey" than you think. 

The final season of the PBS hit show debuts Sunday, and it won't be long until the world's leading expert on the series arrives in Stuart. 

When author, journalist and public speaker Jessica Fellowes visits The Lyric Theatre in Stuart on Jan. 28, she'll draw parallels between early 20th century Britain—when and where the show takes place—and the modern day.

Fellowes is the niece of "Downton Abbey" creator and scriptwriter Julian Fellowes and has written the official companion books to the show. Her talk will focus on social class, gender and technology in post-World War I England. Tickets are $47.

During the discussion, Fellowes plans to explore the changing role of women, the disintegration of class hierarchy and the rise of technology as presented in the historical drama.
