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"
