First introduced to audiences during last summer’s Fresh Ink Series, Mrs. Mannerly emerges from the wickedly funny imagination of Illusion Theater audience favorite Jeffrey Hatcher. Inspired by an etiquette class from his youth, Hatcher creates a world of seven-year-olds studying manners in which one student in the class stands out, the one with the Double-O-Seven briefcase. The production stars Barbara June Patterson (who originated the role of Lucy Stickler in Jeffrey Hatcher’s Murderers) as the textbook perfect Mrs. Mannerly, who is perhaps not quite so perfect. Phyllis Wright, who appeared as Minka Lupino in Murderers, performs a comic tour de force when she pulls off split-second transformations to play all of the other characters in the show.
