West Lutheran presents a two act play featuring the comedic kidnapping of a young twerp by the name of Red.
Synopsis: Based on O'Henry's humorous classic about Bill and Sam who make the mistake of kidnapping a brat known as "Red." Brought up by a rich and frugal uncle and mean housekeeper, Red gladly leaves with the two strangers. The kidnappers are delighted but it is their last moment of peace. Red, or Red Chief, as he prefers to be called now has two full-time playmates and keeps them hopping. While Bill sets about collecting the ransom, Sam tries to entertain Red Chief. It's tiring work and, finally, Sam's patience exhausted, he makes the mistake of getting Red mad. Red Chief's vengeance soon has Sam calling for help. The question now becomes: will Red’s uncle pay to get him back or will the kidnappers have to pay to get rid of him?
