November-December 2012

A Comedy by Jeffrey Hatcher
Directed by Robert Mackenzie
Produced by David Hunt Stafford


Inspired by hilarious memories of a childhood etiquette class, the playwright conjures up the world of a ten-year-old studying manners. Mrs. Mannerly is demanding, and no student in her etiquette classes has ever achieved a perfect score. Young Jeffrey discovers her secret past and is determined to be the first to achieve this feat. This unique comic tale reveals truths about the face we present and the real selves that lie inside.
