It is the next great production of the East Brainerd Community Theatre presented on the community stage at Christ United Methodist Church.
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. Knowing that the widow's wealth is now in negotiable securities, and seeing they cannot get hold of it, they commit her to a "sanatorium" hoping to "bring her to her senses." In the sanatorium she meets various social misfits and in getting to know them, she realizes that she will find happiness with them and plans to spend the rest of her life as one of them. 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.
