The Red Road

Written & Performed by Arigon Starr (Kickapoo- Creek)
Directed by Randy Reinholz (Choctaw)

Preview performance of the radio adaptation of Arigon Starr's 'tour-de-force' one-woman show before it heads to Lincoln, Nebraska for it’s recording with award-winning BBC director Dirk Maggs. You'll follow Grand Ole Opry singer Patty Jones as she leads us through a particularly busy day at Verna Yahola's All Nations Café off legendary Route 66 in Sapulpa, Oklahoma. This raucous comedy features a cast of characters straight out of Indian country- ages nine to fifty-seven- and Miss Starr plays them all!

The Red Road was developed at Native Voices 2005 Playwrights Retreat and received its World Premiere in March 2007 at the Autry National Center in Los Angeles. Admission to this event is free although reservations are requested:
