A group of plays based on short stories by Hector Hugh Munro (18 December 1870 – 13 November 1916), better known by the pen name Saki, who was a British writer that pulled no punches in satirizing society and culture. Saki is considered a master of the short story and is often compared to O. Henry and Dorothy Parker. His tales feature delicately drawn characters and finely judged narratives. As short plays, you are sure to find them as witty and enlightening today as they were to Edwardian society.
The members of the Wilfred family are skeptical when a visiting professor claims to have taught their cat to talk. They are amazed at the discovery of the truth of his claim. Their amazement gives way to annoyance and then to wrath when the fluffy little cat turns out to be a rude and obnoxious feline who insults their friends and servants. The family finally decides to kill the offending cat. What, however, do they tell the professor?
