The Curious Savage coming to the North stage 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.
