Here's a joyful little fable that pokes gentle and hilarious fun at the human condition. Manfred Sparrowhill, a young zoologist who lives near a forest, manages to turn a clever ape into a human being. He plans to introduce his experiment at a luncheon that his snobbish sister is giving for a soft-drink tycoon and his wife. Although the experiment looks human enough, his behavior is outrageous. Twists and turns bring this easy-to-stage one-act to a delightfully surprising climax.
