Because of the Coronavirus pandemic, all scheduled performances of The Curious Savage have been cancelled.
Eden Prairie Players
Eden Prairie Players's winter Play is The Curious Savage by John Patrick, directed by Lori Alsdurf.
Time to book your seats for our winter play, The Curious Savage, opening March 13! We return to The Loading Dock Theatre at PiM Arts High School for this heartfelt comedy about foolish dreams and questioned sanity.
Mrs. Ethel Savage has been left a sizable inheritance by her late husband and wants to make the best use of it in spite of her grown-up stepchildren’s efforts to get their hands on it for personal gain. The stepchildren move her to The Cloisters sanitarium until she ‘comes to her senses' and discloses the location of the missing negotiable bonds.
There, Mrs. Savage becomes friends with the others residing at The Cloisters who attempt to assist in her efforts to conceal the location of the bonds and support her antics to lead her stepchildren on a merry chase to find them.
The dominant mood is high comedy, and the audience is left with a feeling that the neglected virtues of kindness and affection have not been entirely lost in a world that seems at times motivated only by greed and dishonesty.
