"It's an unpredictable, beautifully structured gothic horror-com"
David Zampatti, The West Australian,
"Well Mannered is strange and quite clever. It is a faithful homage to some of the great gothic tales of theatre"
Laura Money, The Australia Times
Well Mannered was presented by The Blue Room Theatre Summer Nights and Samantha Maclean and Haydon Wilson
20 - 22 January 2017
The Blue Room Theatre, Northbridge

We all have regrets from when we were kids, don't we?
Some more than most.
Grace, Wendy and Jason abandoned a man trapped in a well as he begged for their help. As they grew up so did their denial, and they cling to their yearly dinner party rather than trying to face what they’ve done. This time however, Jason has had enough. What’s hiding under the table?
Well Mannered used absurdism, shadow puppetry and physical theatre to ask if ignorance really is bliss.
Originally devised as part of TILT as part of WAAPA’s Bachelor of Performance Making, directed by Samantha Nerida (Tissue), performed by a killer cast of emerging artists, with sound design by Drew Kraplijanov (Between Solar Systems, Frankenstein), we cordially invited you to dinner.
