The Curious Savage – Kirikee Drama Group

Kirikee Drama Group will perform The Curious Savage by John Patrick at the Brockagh Centre on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 April at 8 p.m. The Curious Savage tells the story of Ethel Savage who has been left 10 million dollars by her late husband and wants to put it to good use, in spite of the efforts of her grown-up stepchildren to get their hands on it. The latter, knowing that the widow’s wealth is now in negotiable securities, and seeing they cannot get hold of it, commit her to a “sanatorium” hoping to “bring her to her senses”. But Mrs Savage is determined to establish a fund to help others realise some of their hopes and dreams. The self-seeking stepchildren are driven to distraction by their vain efforts to browbeat Mrs Savage, but she preserves her equanimity and leads them on a merry chase assisted by the new-found friends that she has met in the sanatorium. This is a heart-warming story not to be missed.  Admission on door.
