If you're in the mood for a comedy, head over to Copley High School Nov. 15 through Nov. 17 to see the students perform "Curious Savage," by John Patrick.
The story follows Mrs. Savage after the death of her husband and the inheritance she claims. She wants to find the best way to use $10 million, in spite of her grown-up stepchildren trying to get their hands on it.
The stepchildren, knowing that the widow's wealth is now in negotiable securities, and seeing they cannot get hold of it, commit Mrs. Savage to a "sanatorium" hoping to "bring her to her senses."
Head to the play to see how Mrs. Savage adapts to her new surroundings.
The play starts at 7:30 p.m. in the CHS Auditorium. Tickets are $5 at the door.
Director Maggie Steffen said this play is special because it mixes comedy and drama, much like our everyday lives.
"The subject matter — the pursuit of happiness and how we define happiness — is still very relevant," Steffen said. "Is happiness defined solely by material success and wealth? Is contentment a place of complacency, or is it our duty to reach out to others in need? This play attempts to answer those questions, but it does it through comedy and through some very touching and poignant moments as well.
