The first of many productions for Striving Artists Theatre Company, Inc’s 11th Season. Inspired by hilarious memories of a childhood etiquette class, playwright Jeffrey Hatcher conjures up the world of a ten-year-old studying manners in “Mrs. Mannerly”. Mrs. Mannerly (played by Mary Beth Luzitano) is a demanding teacher, and no student in her thirty-six years of etiquette classes has achieved a perfect score. But when he discovers her secret past, young Jeffrey (played by Greg Geer) 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.
