About this show

"The Curious Savage," is the warm-hearted tale of Mrs. Ethel Savage, a slightly eccentric, extremely wealthy widow. . .

Being the recipient of her deceased husband's estate, she wants to make the best use of it, despite her greedy stepchildren's selfish attempts to get their hands on it. Mrs. Savage, however, has put her wealth into negotiable bonds in the hopes of establishing a fund to help others realize their hopes and dreams, much to the siblings' chagrin. They then commit her to a "sanitorium" in the hopes of shocking her to her senses. There she meets a variety of social misfits, all needing exactly the kind of help Mrs. Savage can provide and who eventually appear more sane that those outside the walls of the institution. These wonderful individuals immediately endear themselves to Mrs. Savage. With the help of her new-found friends, Mrs. Savage leads her stepchildren on a merry chase! A lovely story about what it means to be a family.
