A comedic play about Ethel P. Savage, an elderly woman whose husband recently died and left her approximately ten million dollars, the play contrasts the kindness and loyalty of psychiatric patients with the avarice and vanity of "respectable" public figures, it calls into question conventional definitions of sanity while lampooning celebrity culture. The play was first produced in New York by the Theatre Guild and Lewis & Young at the Martin Beck Theatre and opened October 24, 1950, with Lillian Gish in the role of Ethel.
Cost is $15 per person (free for children 12 and under); for information or advance tickets, please call 503-368-7008.
