Beasts on the Lawn: Saki 2011
Original stories by Saki (H.H Munro)
Adapted by Sean Grundy

Beasts on the Lawn is a collection of Edwardian short stories by Saki (H.H Munro) recycled and restaged in a modern day gated community for the far too wealthy for their own good. The tales are woven together by the character of Clovis, a security guard. She recalls the events of strange days and long nights.

Episode One - Tobermory

Barrister couple Lady Jane and Jean-Michel Blemley hold a dinner party for some of their rich clients. One of their guests, eccentric scientist Cornelius Appin, claims that he has been experimenting with animal behaviour techniques and can teach them to communicate.
