Alaska Center for the Performing Arts Inc, 621 West 6th Avenue, Anchorage, AK 99501, United States
When You Comin' Back, Red Ryder?, a drama written by Mark Medoff, is set to appear at Anchorage's Alaska Center for the Performing Arts in April.
Presented by the UAA Department of Theatre and Dance, the show tells the story of a drug-dealing miscreant who terrorises a small town, hijacking a roadside diner.
While the situation escalates into a hostage crisis, every patron at the establishment finds themselves forced to confront their own histories and inadequacies.
This Obie award-winning drama features messages that are as relevant to the modern world of global terrorism and corporate theft as they were at the time they were written.
When You Comin' Back, Red Ryder? has won widespread critical acclaim, including from the New York Times, which described the play as "a barometer of social and psychic change in America".
Culture vultures searching for accommodation close to the venue should look no further than the nearby Millennium Alaskan Hotel Anchorage.
The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race begins in Anchorage on March 2nd.
