In this tart but charming comedy, it is the fall of 1967 and young Jeffrey has just enrolled in a manners class taught by the formidable Helen Anderson Kirk, otherwise known as Mrs. Mannerly. Although society is rapidly changing, Jeffrey and his rival classmates must decide how far they will go to become the first student to achieve a perfect score on Mrs. Mannerly’s legendary final exam.

Read Director Mark Shanahan’s thoughts on the role of etiquette in the 1967 world of the play and today in our recent blog post.
