Fabulous review from Theatre Alive:

The Etiquette Hour with Lady Cordelia Winterbottom

A rainy Saturday night did not deter the small, intimate crowd from learning some invaluable lessons in 'modern' etiquette from Lady Cordelia Winterbottom’s Etiquette Hour.

The most prim and proper yet utterly likeable Ms Winterbottom regaled her class of ‘caterpillars’ how to become lady-like society butterflies. This included such insights as how clean one’s teeth (tar and wood?), to a considerate philosophy of adultery, with reference to such text-books such as Cakes Men Like, and Cosmopolitan’s New Guide to Etiquette

Such lessons were interspersed with further educational songs complimented by Ms Winterbottom’s impressive operatic voice. Whilst these antiquated lessons in etiquette were indeed laughable and this show was wonderfully entertaining, comedy festival fans note that this is more of theatrical cabaret show, not stand-up comedy. Nonetheless there are plenty of giggles, fun and a few surprises in store for you caterpillars...

"Loved the 'groovy' rap!"

"Great fun, plenty of laughs"

"She's fantastic, a new Dame Edna in our midst"

The Etiquette Hour with Lady Cordelia

Thank You Helen Razer for the lovely writeup.

The Et
iquette Hour
Cordelia Winterbottom.

30 Mar-1 Apr 6.45pm; 6-9 Apr 8pm; 13-16 Apr 9.15pm; 20-23 Apr 6.45pm Where: The Dog Theatre at Footscray Community Arts Centre Tickets: $17-$25. Bookings through The Dog Theatre, or at the door.

In a world drained of empathy and correctly placed pinkies, the Lady Cordelia is here to assist.

We've not actually visited Her Grace's School for Wayward Girls as yet. But, here at Citysearch, we approve of any lady who wears a strong foundation garment and preaches the value of afternoon tea.

In recent years, the hunger for gentility and vintage niceties has grown. It's surprising, then, that so few performers have reaped this crop so ripe for comedy. It is our great hope, as avid readers of Mrs Emily Post, that the Lady Cordelia will feed our need for good deeds.

For fans of antiquity and drag, or "performativity" as the posh people would have it, this evening of nicely-attired instruction is probably a must.
