Overview

The lively sequel to The Curious Savage, one of the most beloved and widely performed plays of the modern theatre. All the wonderful, zany characters of the original play are together again and involved in a delightful new series of hilarious misadventures with, as before, the indomitable Mrs. Savage saving the day.Depressed and world-weary, after extensive travels, the reputedly wealthy Mrs. Ethel Savage returns to the sheltered precincts of The Cloisters, seeking refuge among her former fellow patients. But The Cloisters is on the verge of closing due to lack of funds, and as Mrs. Savage's fortune is now in the control of her greedy stepchildren, she is powerless to help. Until, that is, a "hippy" couple storm in bent on robbery—and Mrs. Savage persuades them to "kidnap" her, with her share of the ransom going to the sanitorium. From then on the plot twists and turns delightfully, as one hilarious event follows another, leading in the end to a heartwarming lesson in the essential goodness that lurks somewhere even in the worst (and sanest) of us.
