Dale Hodges stars in the title role of the play “Mrs. Mannerly” by Jeffrey Hatcher that opens the 2013-14 season at Hartford’s TheaterWorks. Raymond McAnally plays the role of young Jeffrey. McAnally was also in Long Wharf Theatre’s production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and toured in the solo show, “Defending the Caveman.”
Ed Stern, former artistic director of Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park for 20 years, previously staged the show for the Ensemble Theatre of Cincinnati with Hodges and McAnally.
The two-character play centers is loosely based on Hatcher’s experience with an etiquette teacher from his youth who helped shape him.
