the curious savage


PLAY – Mrs. Savage, an elderly woman, whose husband has left her $10 million dollars intends to give the entire fortune away to people who wish to pursue their “foolish dreams,” but her stepchildren strongly object. To prevent Mrs. Savage from doing away with their family’s wealth and ruining their legacy, her stepchildren have her committed to a sanatorium called The Cloisters, and it is among the gentle residents there that she finds her true family. The Curious Savage is a warm comedy that compares the kindness and loyalty of psychiatric patients with the greed and hostility of so-called “normal people.”

Approximate Duration: 2 Hours
