“The Curious Savage is the story of an elderly widow named Mrs. Ethel P. Savage, whose husband has left her $10 million dollars. She intends to give the entire fortune away to people who wish to pursue their “foolish dreams,” but her stepchildren strongly object and place her in a sanitarium.” This delightful comedy explores who has the true grasp on reality and teaches us to look beyond first impressions, assumptions and outward appearances and instead gaze into the hearts and souls of fellow humans and embrace the desire and need we all have to be loved and accepted for who and what we are.
