Northark Drama Presents:

              When You Comin’ Back Red Ryder?

By Mark Medoff

Licensed by Dramatist Play Service

Our setting is Foster's Diner, an all-night diner in a southwestern town. The rest stop has lost most of its clientele due to a new highway bypass. It is early Sunday morning, when the night attendant Stephen (Red Ryder, performed by Korey Billington-Wood) Ryder, is about to turn his duties over to his daytime counterpart, Angel (Amber Millsap). Her friend Lyle Striker (Preston Garrison), who runs the filling station and motel across the road, stops by for breakfast, followed by an affluent young couple en route to New Orleans. With the arrival of another couple, Teddy (Michael Mahoney) and Cheryl (Rebecca Filkins), the existing calm quickly vanishes. Their van, in which they are smuggling marijuana into California, has broken down, and while they wait for it to be repaired, Teddy, begins to taunt, bully, and terrorize the others in the diner. With black, sardonic humor he gets at each in turn, stripping away their pretensions and exposing their innermost secrets and fears. They are soon his helpless victims, too terrified to resist as he binds and robs them before heading off down the highway, this time alone. In the end the others, after freeing themselves, realize that they have come through their ordeal without serious harm – at least physically. But for each a searing moment of truth has been faced and, in a deeper sense, they know that they have been changed more than they would have the desire, or perhaps courage, to admit.
