Village Church Theater in Rancho Santa Fe to present ‘Curious Savage’


The Village Church Community Theater presents “A Curious Savage,” a thought-provoking comic tale that will challenge you to discover again the values of kindness and affection lost in a world that seems motivated at times by greed and dishonesty.

Ethel Savage, a new widow, has been left with a substantial fortune. Her three grown children — a senator, a judge and a gold-digger of a daughter — are intent on keeping her from disposing of it as 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,” by John Patrick, is a play filled with heart where the neglected virtues of goodness have not been entirely lost. It’s perfect for audiences teen through adult.

Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 20; 4 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 21; and 2 p.m. Sunday, March 22.
