Based on the short story by O. Henry, adapted by Alan Keith
adaption of O. Henrys short story, from A. Keith Smith
of the Arkansas Arts Center Childrens Theatre, is
CT-As traveling school show for the season. The story
follows two hapless men trying to make some fast money when
they arrive in the small town of Summit, Alabama. They decide
to kidnap a local bankers son. But the plan starts
to unravel when the three go on a camping trip -- the boy
dons the persona of Red Chief and terrorizes the two men
so much that they gradually lower their ransom demand as
they suffer from Red Chiefs playful antics and pranks.
And, of course, as with most O. Henry stories, theres
a twist you wont see coming. This comedy is an excellent
way to teach about irony and exaggeration.
