Ransom of Red Chief
(After O. Henry)
Characters:
Sam – a man
Bill – his friend
Johnny – a boy of ten, the only son of a rich man
Characters from Bill’s sleep (as many students as you like)
Sam (talks to the public): We have stolen a boy. He is the only son of a rich man. We have sent a letter to his father and asked for two-thousand-dollar ransom. When we get the money, the boy will go back to his father.
(There is a fire in the middle of the stage. Near the fire Sam sees Bill standing with his hands raised. Johnny is standing in front of him with a big stone in his hand. You can see that Bill is afraid of the boy.)
Johnny (shouting): Hay, you! Raise your hands higher! Answer my questions!
Johnny sees Sam: Hurrah! Here you are! Come to the fire. Red Chief is happy to see you!
Bill: You are in time, Sam. We are playing Indians.
Sam: Let`s have supper. I have brought some nice things.
Bill: I am so tired. I am happy you are back. (He is going to sit down at the fire)
Johnny (to Bill): Hay, you, stand up! How dare you sit when Red Chief is standing.
Sam: Well, Red chief, let him sit down.
Johnny: All right. You may sit down there!
Bill: Thank you, Red Chief (Bill falls asleep and sees a beautiful dream.
(Dance)
(In the dream he suddenly sees Johnny dancing with the pretty girls. Johnny grabs Bill’s hair. Bill wakes up and sees Johnny in reality.)
Johnny (to Bill): Hay, you, stand up! How dare you sit when Red Chief is standing!
Sam (to Johnny): Hay, you, go away!
(Sam goes over to Bill, sits next to him and they begin to talk quietly. Johnny takes a hot potato from the fire, comes up to the two men from behind and throws the potato into Bill`s shirt)
Bill (cries out): Oh! Ah!
Sam (jumping up): What`s that? What`s that?
Bill (pointing to his back): He has put something hot there! Take it out! Take it out! Oh! Oh!
Sam (taking the potato out from Bill`s shirt and turning to Johnny): Why did you do it, Johnny?
Johnny: I am not Johnny. I am Read Chief. How dare you speak to me in such a tone!
Bill: Sam, let`s send the boy back home. I don`t want any ransom. I can`t play with him any longer.
Sam: bill, don`t show the boy that you are afraid of him. (To Johnny): Listen to me, boy. Leave him alone or I will take you home.
Johnny: Oh, don`t send me back home! I don`t want to go home! I`ll be good. We are only playing.
Bill (with tears in his voice): Sam, let`s send him back. His father will not pay money for such a boy.
Johnny: Bill, don`t be angry with me. I`ll be good. Let’s play another game.
Bill: What must I do in this game?
Johnny: You`ll be my horse.
Bill (to Sam): I`ll take him to the road and leave him there.
Sam: All right.
Johnny (to Bill): Stand on your knees and hands.
Bill: All right. All right.
(He gets down on his knees and hands. Johnny sits on his back and they ride away. Soon Bill appears, he looks happy)
Bill:
Sam (sees Johnny coming behind Bill): Bill, look back.
(Bill turns back. He sees Johnny)
Bill: Ah! Ah! Help! Help! Let`s carry him to his father!
Sam: Let`s carry him home!
(They hold the boy by the hands and feet. The boy shouts.)
Johnny: I don`t want to go home! I don`t want to go home!
(They carry the shouting boy away)
