Mrs, Mannerly- TheaterWorks

From the author of Ella: Off the Record

Mrs. Mannerly

by Jeffrey Hatcher
At TheaterWorks in Downtown Hartford
Irreverent and clever comedy runs October 11 through November 17, 2013

In the cutthroat world of folded napkins, ballroom dancing, poise, grace, and the proper placement of forks

 and spoons - Mrs. Mannerly has been the despotic ruler of her etiquette class for decades, where no student

 has ever achieved a perfect score. But when young Jeffrey discovers her secret past, he becomes determined 

to be the first.  Inspired by hilarious memories of his childhood, playwright Jeffrey Hatcher perfectly conjures up 

the uniquely candid world of a ten year old!!

Mrs.Manerly TheaterWorks

This irreverent comic tale reveals truths about the face
we present and our truer selves. Adding to the fun - Jeffrey
is played by a grown man! Producing Artistic Director, Rob Ruggiero

roles as Mrs. Mannerly and Jeffrey in award winning performances called impeccable,
hysterical and ingenious.
