The show this year is the delightful comedy The Curious Savage by John Patrick
The Curious Savage tells the story of Mrs. Ethel P. Savage a wealthy
widow who marches to a decidedly different drum than her three greedy
stepchildren who have her committed to a sanitarium after her husband’s
death, so that she won’t squander the family fortune on "foolish"
Mrs. Savage is a delightfully different woman; but even though she might
have a few fanciful ideas, she is most definitely not crazy. The sanity
of the lovable friends whom she makes in the sanitarium, however, is
questionable. In fact, the whole show begs audience members to define
what is “crazy,” a task that may seem more complicated after viewing
John Patrick’s fascinating and thought-provoking comedy.
This comedy leaves the audience feeling that the neglected virtues of
kindness and affection have not been entirely lost in a world that seems
at times to only be motivated by greed and dishonesty.
