the curious savage

Directed by Howard and Kathryn Laycock Little

The Pleasant Grove Players will present performances of the heartwarming comedy, "The Curious Savage," by John Patrick from April 14 - May 1 on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Monday evenings at 7:30pm. There will also be a Saturday matinee at 3:00pm on April 29. “The Curious Savage” will be presented in the Keith Christeson Theater on the first floor of the Pleasant Grove Library at 30 East Center Street. Howard and Kathryn Little are directing this production.

"The Curious Savage" tells the story of Ethel P. Savage, who has been committed to a sanitarium by her 3 stepchildren, all respectable members of society, for her "eccentric" behavior such as setting up a memorial fund with the ten million dollars her late husband left her rather than leave it to the children. In the sanitarium, Ethel is greeted and accepted by the kind residents who each have their own "eccentric" behaviors. As the play progresses, we come to realize that it isn’t always easy to see who is "normal" and who is not.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $9 for students and seniors ($1 less for the matinee.) Seating is reserved and tickets may be purchased online at The box office will be open for current and future sales on performance nights from 6:45 pm to 7:30 pm. There is a 2 for 1 ticket offer (promo code “TWOFER”) on the opening Friday, April 14, and Saturday, April 15, evening performances. Discounts may not be combined.


This production is supported by a grant from the Pleasant Grove Arts Commission.
