In 1927 Ethel Cotton wrote a book on the art of conversation which promised a fascinating new way to win poise, charm and personality. This book will be used and her techniques followed to provoke a darkly humorous conversation between this woman of the past and us now.
What conversation will we have? Will we win poise, charm and personality? Will we feel reborn into the world with a new understanding of ourselves and others? Or will we leave feeling more alone than we have ever felt?
