Synopsis

IMG_9129Curious Savage is a comedic play about Ethel P. Savage, a woman whose husband recently died and left her approximately ten million dollars. Contrasting the kindness and loyalty of psychiatric patients with the avarice and vanity of “respectable” public figures, the play satirizes conventional definitions of sanity while lampooning celebrity culture.

“It’s been wonderful working with everyone,” Thomas said. “It has been an amazing experience watching everyone grow into their roles and having the honor of directing a great show.”
