TCC THEATRE DEPARMENT STAGES JOHN PATRICK’S THE CURIOUS SAVAGE
Performances at TCC Chesapeake Studio Theatre, March 24-28, and TCC Roper, April 1-3
HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (March 18, 2010) – Actors are readied, costumes are pressed and the curtains will soon rise for Tidewater Community College Theatre Department’s adaptation of John Patrick’s The Curious Savage. Performances begin at TCC’s Chesapeake Studio Theatre March 24-28 and move to the Roper Performing Arts Center April 1-3.
This delightful and insightful comedy begins as the main character, Mrs. Savage, inherits $10 million from her dearly departed husband. In an interesting turn of event, Mrs. Savage deems it wise to bequeath the monies to strangers, in spite of her stepchildren’s wishes to keep the money in the family. The children place Mrs. Savage in a “sanatorium” to help bring her to her senses.
Performance times are:
- March 24-27 at 8 p.m. - Chesapeake
- March 28 at 2 p.m. - Chesapeake
- April 1-3 at 8 p.m. - Roper
