About The Show

By John Patrick

October 29 – November 24

Presented at the Cook Theatre


Delight in the hilarious and bittersweet story of Mrs. Savage, an eccentric millionairess, whose love of theatre and desire to help others cause her stepchildren to commit her to “The Cloisters,” a mental asylum for recovering patients, and of the unlikely new friends she makes there. At the end of this brilliant comedy, you won’t help but share in Mrs. Savage’s discovery that the cut-throat world of hypocrisy and greed outside of “The Cloisters” is more insane than the gentle commune inside its walls!


“The Curious Savage” deals with a theme of mental health, although it addresses it in an exceptionally tactful way.
