STORIES FROM SAKI adapted and directed by Deirdre Kincaid

H.H. Munro ('Saki') casts a satirical eye on the doings of the upper- and upper-middle classes of Edwardian England. Life seems to be one long house-party for these people, but among the exquisite manners and the appreciation of fine wines and food lurk scandals, self-seeking schemes gone awry, and bizarre happenings.

- A cat who has been taught to speak reveals more than the house-party guests would wish;
- the country peace of a small village proves more sinister than it looks;
- legacy-seeking sisters' plans go down the drain when their aunt discovers the high life;
- a terribly serious church historian has an embarrassing sideline;
- a man practised in Siberian shamanism turns a lady into a wolf ��" or does he?
- a man in search of a rest-cure meets his match in a mischievous teenage girl;
- an embarrassed man tries to rid his clothing of a mouse while sharing a train compartment with a lady;
- and more!
