What would you do if you were left $10 million? In Bishop Lynch High School’s spring performance of “The Curious Savage” by John Patrick, Mrs. Savage is left a large estate by her late husband. She wishes to use the money to help others; however, her greedy stepchildren want to use the money for personal gain. In attempts to obtain the money, they have Mrs. Savage committed to a sanatorium, declaring her mentally incompetent.
While in the sanatorium Mrs. Savage meets a group of social misfits. These individuals have hearts of gold, but cannot adjust themselves to the outside world. This heartfelt comedy reminds the audience that the neglected virtues of kindness and affection can sometimes be found in the least likely of places.
Taking place in the 1940s, the set will take the audience to a bygone era, but resonate with a classic theme.
The production of “The Curious Savage” will run from Wednesday, April 15 to Friday, April 24 with eight performances. Curtain time is 7:30 pm and except for the 2:00 pm matinee on Sunday, April 19. All performances will take place in the Blackbox Theatre. Seating is limited, so be sure to arrive early.
Tickets are $10 per person (except on Preview Night, April 15) and are available for purchase through the Bishop Lynch website. For more information or to order tickets, please contact Terry May at firstname.lastname@example.org.
