In the cutthroat world of folded napkins, ballroom dancing and countless lessons on 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. 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!
