PRESS

“A piece of bright sparky dance making from the Canadian Joe Laughlin. L’Etiquette is about baroque manners, twisted, tickled, sent-up, knocked down. A dinner party; fans flicked open in coded signs; a boy dressed before us in drag; elaborate manners and not so elaborate jokes; period costumes and projections of baroque interiors and an irresistible verve are the ingredients. Hurrah for Laughlin and his cast.”

– Clement Crisp, The Financial Times
