The Curious Savage

savage_thumb Join the Acalanes DramaDons in their entertaining and comedic production of The Curious Savage, directed by Ed Meehan, Acalanes drama teacher. The plot has delightful twists involving a widow who inherited million of dollars from her husband and wants to use the money to help others realize their hopes and dreams.  Her grown-up stepchildren want the money for themselves and commit the widow to a “sanatorium” hoping to “bring her to her senses.” Instead, the widow leads the self-serving stepchildren on a hilarious chase for the inheritance, while befriending the charming “guests” of the sanatorium. The story playfully highlights how, in a world that seems motivated by greed and dishonesty, the virtues of kindness and affection can prevail!  The production runs November 10, 12, 13 and 14 at 7.00pm in the Acalanes little theatre.  Tickets are available in November during lunch at AHS and on line from the web store. Limited ticket sales at the door.  Doors open at 6.30pm.  Adults $12, Students and Seniors $7.  It is a night you won’t want to miss!
