3 Male 2 Female

Crusty but confused Estelle Bentwood insists her cat, Miss Pearl, has been writing naughty sea faring novels on her Underwood

Her niece, Mary, and Horace, the long suffering waiter, almost talk her out of the notion - when an excitable publisher shows up with a manuscript, a contract, certified check and a passion for Miss Pearl!

There's laughable confusion to comic chaos as everyone tries to close the deal in a different way

In the unexpected climax Miss Pearl herself appears - and her unlikely visit is a shock to everyone in this one act comedy
