Life According to Saki

Life According to Saki
This show has now finished

New play from acclaimed author Katherine Rundell (Rooftoppers, The Wolf Wilder, The Girl Savage) inspired by the short stories of Saki. Best described as like Oscar Wilde crossed with Roald Dahl, Saki's creations are witty, absurd – and peculiarly optimistic. Life, according to Saki, is wild and funny and precious and a little unhinged. Performed by an ensemble cast, this vibrant production (including drama, dance and puppetry) premieres at the 2016 Fringe, exactly a century after Saki's tragic death in the trenches of the First World War.
