Miscellaneous notes from the author
One-act play based on a short story by Saki. Intended to be played near-continuously on a simple set (different parts of the stage representing different locations).
This might be described as a black comedy, since our sympathies lie with Conradin, the orphan at the centre of the story who is oppressed by his aunt. Eventually, the aunt gets her comeuppance from Sredni Vashtar, Conradin's very dangerous pet, and Conradin gets to eat more toast.
