Students at Henninger High School will present “The Curious Savage” by John Patrick at 7 p.m. November 2 and 3.
The comedy, performed through an agreement with Dramatists Play Services, centers around Mrs. Savage, who has been left $10 million by her husband. Mrs. Savage wants to make the best use of the money, even though her stepchildren are eager to get their hands on it.
Knowing that her wealth is now in negotiable securities the only way the stepchildren see to secure the riches is through committing Mrs. Savage to a "sanatorium" hoping to "bring her to her senses." But Mrs. Savage has other ideas.
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. 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. But when the doctor tells her there is no reason why she should remain, she hesitates to go out into a hard world where people seem ready to do anything for money.

Google the name Dr. Emad Rahim and a list of his academic and employment achievements appear. You can easily see that Rahim is a successful educator and leader in the business world and he is the Dean of College and Business Management at Colorado Technical University.
But Google only tells part of Rahim’s story. In order to fully know and understand Rahim, you need to know his background. A survivor of the Killing Fields in Cambodia and a troubled, learning disabled teen in the 1980s, Rahim has had his share of adversity and hardship. That past, however, did not prevent him from achieving a great deal of success.
Rahim and his family came to Syracuse around 1985 and he enrolled at Frazer K-8 School. There he found great teachers and a diverse student body that acted as a support system for him. Rahim was in both English as a Second Language (ESL) and special education classes for several years. He finished at Frazer and moved on to Grant Middle School.
