The Curious Savage

$22.00
Mrs. Savage has been left ten million dollars by her husband and wants to make the best use of it, in spite of her grown-up stepchildren’s efforts to get their hands on it. Knowing that the widow’s wealth is now in negotiable securities, and seeing they cannot get hold of the fortune, the stepchildren commit her to a sanatorium hoping to “bring her to her senses.” In the sanatorium Mrs. Savage meets various social misfits, men and women who just cannot adjust themselves to life, people who need the help Mrs. Savage can provide. In getting to know them, she realizes that she will find happiness with them and plans to spend the rest of her life as one of them. But when the doctor tells her there is no reason why she should remain, she hesitates to go out into a hard world where people seem ready to do anything for money. The self-seeking stepchildren are driven to distraction by their vain efforts to browbeat Mrs. Savage, but she preserves her equanimity and leads them on a merry chase. At last her friends conspire to get rid of her stepchildren, and through their simple belief in the justice of her cause, they enable Mrs. Savage to carry out her plans to establish a fund to help others realize their hopes and dreams. The dominant mood is high comedy, and the audience is left with a feeling that the neglected virtues of kindness and affection have not been entirely lost in a world that seems at times motivated only by greed and dishonesty.
Seats & Space
Seating options consist of carefully curated vintage couches, sofas, side chairs, and more comfort than you'll find at any other theater in the region.
  • Early Bird General Admission = Pick this for the cheapest price... we are rewarding folks for buying early... you'll still have your choice of non-reserved couches, arm chairs, and cabaret style upright chairs with small tables.
  • General Admission = The same as above, but normal price. ;-)
  • Dinner and a Show = This option gets you reservations at Goldfinch Tap & Eatery (next door to the theater) for 6:30 and reserved seats for the show.  Enjoy a great meal and don't worry about getting to the theater early.  

The audience space is thoughtfully arranged to make sure patrons are as comfortable in Giving Tree as they are in their own homes. Although more seats could be installed to accommodate larger audiences, Giving Tree is focused on seating quality vs. quantity, and limiting availability to place more comfortable “non-traditional” seating.
