English Drama Group performs a play by John Patrick

Ten million dollars is a lot of money, no doubt. However, its purpose of use offers various causes for dispute, anger and intrigues. Bielefeld University’s English Drama Group presents “The Curious Savage”, a comedy by John Patrick, from February 9th – 14th at 8 o’clock pm (February 9th: lecture hall 1; February 10th: lecture hall 12; February 11th: lecture hall 1; February 12th-14th: lecture hall 7). The play will be staged in English under the direction of Angie Starczyk and Sonja Vollmer. Admission is free.

Zum Semesterende präsentiert die English Drama Group eine Komödie von John Patrick.
At the end of the semester the English Drama Group performs a comedy by John Patrick.
Mrs. Savage has been left ten million dollars by her husband and wants to make the best use of it, in spite of the efforts of her grown-up stepchildren to get their hands on it. These latter, knowing that the widow's wealth is now in negotiable securities, and seeing they cannot get hold of it, commit her to a "sanatorium" hoping to "bring her to her senses". But Mrs. Savage is determined to establish a fund to help others realize their hopes and dreams. In the sanatorium she meets various social misfits, men and women who just cannot adjust themselves to life, people who need the help Mrs. Savage can provide. 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.

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 motivated at times only by greed and dishonesty.

The English Drama Group was established in 1976 to reinforce language experience. The amateur theatre group consists of students from different faculties and realizes two plays in a year, each performed at the end of the semester. During practice the group also only speaks in English.
