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 then.
