The Temperance Society

by Curious Cargo

Is your deportment dreadful? Has your etiquette evaporated? Are your morals meagre or missing? Indeed is your sobriety sodden with sin? Then never fear, the Victorians are here to help you mend your ways. They’re frightfully proper, sombre and stern, with a terribly stiff upper lip. They’ll dust down your decorum, straighten your backbone, and sort out your p’s from your q’s! A whirlwind of petticoats, crinolined & cravatted crusaders; they’re the model of virtue you need!

If you need a solo performer then the Temperance Lady is available to seek out immorality everywhere, or the company are available with anything up to five performers for events where a full demonstration against fun is required.
