Mrs Mortimer’s Xenophobic Travel Guide

2015 MN FRINGE FESTIVAL

A Victorian-era Englishwoman describes the nasty habits of foreigners. Hilariously prejudiced!

Mrs M shaking finger

Favell Lee Mortimer (1802-78) set foot outside of England only twice in her life. This did not stop her from writing books that promoted stereotypical ideas about the peoples of Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and America.

Mrs Mortimer’s Xenophobic Travel Guide puts the good woman onstage for the first time. You have much to learn from her!
