Miscellaneous notes from the author
Stage adaptation of one of Saki's subversive stories. Single set - largely a few benches.
On a railway journey, three children are being disruptive. Their aunt tries to settle them with a moralistic story, but this fails to do the trick, whereas a fellow traveller captivates them with a story in which a good girl is by virtue of being good, caught and devoured by a wolf.
(In this adaptation, the writer takes an even more subversive interpretation of 'devoured', though a milder ending is also offered!)
