The Curious Savage - John Patrick I was reminded of this play today because I wore the jersey my high school drama club created to promote our production of it in - I think - my junior year. (Yes, I am something of a clothes horse - I have items of apparel that are 20+ years old.)

I played Hannibal.

What made this play particularly special for my troupe was that our drama teacher (Mrs. Warren) usually stuck with large-ensemble, family-type stuff like "I Remember Mama" or "Our Town" because she wanted to include as many willing students as possible in the cast. Not a bad sentiment but it limited what we could do. This was a bit of a departure, and all the more memorable for that.
