Saki: Who Killed Mrs De Ropp?

Drama adapted from works by Edwardian short story writer Saki. It's a tale of repressed children who find solace in their childish wonder, and are saved by their imagination.

Drama adapted from works by Edwardian short story writer Saki. On a train journey, Saki meets Mrs De Ropp, oppressive aunt and guardian to an unruly brood. Inspired by the meeting, he imagines a tale of repressed children who find solace in their childish wonder, and are saved by their imagination. This innovative drama mixes live action and animation and is both a dark social satire of Edwardian attitudes to children and a fairytale for grown-ups.
