Grove Players Present The Curious Savage

Presented by Grove Players at Lincoln Center, Downers Grove IL

Nov 05 - 14 2021
Grove Players Present The Curious Savage

​Join Grove Players as we return to the stage with John Patrick’s The Curious Savage, and take in story filled with some tears, lots of laughter, and endless opportunities for introspection.

The Curious Savage walks us through the story and hijinks of the recently widowed Mrs. Ethel Savage and what she intends to do with her late husband’s estate.

​The story also gives a glimpse of what it can be like to struggle with varying types of mental illness and distress, while encouraging us to never give up hope, give up on any of our “foolish dreams.”

Mrs. Savage – Donna Mullen
Fairy – Courtney Elliott
Florence – Alicia Cuccia
Hannibal – Alejandro Herrera
Jeff – Jack Burr View more


Adults: $20

Seniors/Students: $17

Tickets may be purchased at the box office on the day of the performance or online at on or after October 8th.
