The Curious Savage by John Patrick
Mrs. Savage has been left ten million dollars by her husband and wants to make the best use of it. Her grown-up stepchildren, trying to get their hands on the fortune, commit the widow to a sanatorium hoping to “bring her to her senses.” Here, Mrs Savage and her newfound friends conspire to dispose of the stepchildren. The finale is a delightful fantasy where each sanatorium “guest” realizes at last some hopeless dream, and the audience sees kindness and affection triumph over greed and dishonesty. More »
