The Curious Savage on stage at North April 7-9
North High Drama presents The Curious Savage, a comedic play about Ethel P. Savage, an elderly woman whose husband recently died and left her approximately ten million dollars. Contrasting the kindness and loyalty of psychiatric patients with the obsessive vanity of "respectable" public figures, and family members, it calls into question conventional definitions of kindness, decency, and sheer lunacy.
Thursday, April 7 at 7 p.m.
Friday, April 8 at 7 p.m.
Saturday, April 9 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Presale tickets available until Friday, April 1 for only $6!
ORDER YOUR TICKETS ONLINE TODAY! (Or, bring your smartphone to buy tickets at the door. All ticket sales are online - even at the door. There is no cash accepted at the door.)
