This uproarious yet touching 1950 classic, written by John Patrick, directed by Jan & Tom
Novotny, and produced by Brenda Gilmore, is the 3rd entry in the Joliet Drama Guild’s
fantastic 77th season! Performances are inside the Billie Limacher Bicentennial Park Theatre,
201 W. Jefferson St., Joliet, at the bluffs between Jefferson and Cass.
Mrs. Ethel Savage wants to use the ten million dollars left by her late husband to help the
hopes and dreams of average people come true. Her nasty grown stepchildren, unable to get
their hands on the craftily hidden money and hoping to bring her to her senses, have her
committed to an upscale "sanatorium", The Cloisters.
There she meets a variety of oddball “guests” – who welcome Mrs. Savage into their midst -
and conspire to help her foil the stepchildren by leading them on a very merry wild goose
A tale exploring justice and the perception of others, this charming heart-warming comedy is
non-stop madcap interaction between the two competing ensembles, the Savage children and
the colorful assemblage of institution “guests”. With virtues of kindness and affection, each of
these “guests” have their own story to tell.
A truly fun-loving romp, this one’s sure to have you still chuckling out the door and all the way
