Miscellaneous notes from the author
A blackly comic stage adaptation of one of Saki's subversive stories. Two locations, but neither need be elaborate (so could be done in a 'black box' with small items of furniture). Aimed at secondary schools, but could be done by adults.
Framton has been sent to the country as a rest cure for his nerves. However, his encounter with his doctor's cousin, Gertrude, and her neices is anything but calming.
