“The Curious Savage” is a comic tale of greed, generosity and sanity. Ethel Savage, a new widow, has been left with a substantial fortune. But her three grown children — a senator, a judge and a gold-digger of a daughter — are intent on keeping her from dispensing it in any way she chooses. So they conspire to have her committed to a private sanatorium known as “The Cloisters.”

There, Ethel is left to work out how she will deal with her spiteful offspring, while getting to know the colorful characters who live in the facility. “The Curious Savage” is a feel- good play filled with heart, where the neglected virtues of kindness and affection have not been entirely lost in a world that seems motivated at times by greed and dishonesty.
