According to the Eden Prairie Players’ web page, “Mrs. Ethel Savage has been left a sizable inheritance by her late husband and she wants to make the best use of it, in spite of her stepchildren’s efforts to get their hands on it for personal gain. The stepchildren move her to The Cloisters sanitarium until she ‘comes to her senses’ and discloses the location of the missing negotiable bonds.”
