France, 1782 during the reign of Louis XVI and his Queen Marie Antionette. We find the Comtesse De Vache (Jennifer Saunders) and her trusty maid Lisette (Dawn French) up to no good amid the decadent splendour of the Palace of Versailles. The corrupt court is awash with sexual scandal and intrigue, most of it stirred up by the Comtesse in her schemes to get the better of her deadly rival, the man-eater Madame la Plonge (Alison Steadman). 'Let Them Eat Cake' is a devilishly funny romp through 18th Century France, where the wigs are as high as the humour and it's impossible to tell who is more revolting - the peasants or the nobles.
