Life on the Reservation
Starring Rudy Ramos
Directed by Steve Railsback
Written by Janelle Meraz Hooper
This is a story about the last 23 years of Geronimo’s life as a prisoner of war. It starts with his final surrender in 1886. After stops in Florida and Alabama prisons he was sent to his final stop at Ft. Sill Oklahoma where he spent the last 15 years of his life. It focuses on the resiliency, humor and genius of the great Apache warrior.
In this presentation, Geronimo cleverly evolves from a surrendered Indian leader into a celebrity and entrepreneur. Keenly aware of how to work the political system he joins the same church that Theodore Roosevelt belongs to and rides in his Inaugural Parade. Although he isn’t successful in getting everything he wants he certainly succeeds in making the best of his situation.
Geronimo was never beaten. He simply adapted to his present circumstances.
“To my knowledge no one in the history of American stage has ever played him or told his side of the story at this stage of his life. I am honored to play him and give him the voice he deserves… the voice he never had.” – Rudy Ramos
