Drama 2017-2018 Season
God gave you some amazing gifts! Let’s invest them so they grow.
The Curious Savage
The Curious Savage, written by John Patrick, is a highly comedic play about Ethel P. Savage, a blue-haired elderly woman whose husband recently died and left her approximately a hundred million dollars. She determines to spend it on the fancy dreams of other people, but her children have other ideas. They conspire to have her committed to an asylum to gain control of the money. Mrs. Savage manages to outwit her children, and bring to life the hopes and dreams of those in the institution, while showing us that the neglected virtues of kindness, affection, and loyalty have not been entirely lost in a world that seems, at times, motivated only by greed and dishonesty.
Listed in the top 5 popular plays performed in high schools in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, The Curious Savage is an entertaining and fanciful comedy appropriate for all age groups. Bring the whole family. There is something delightful for everyone.
