The evening continues with false starts and stalls. The effect is like a board game in which someone keeps forcing us to return to ''Go. Gradually a semblance of a story line emerges. A general and a jeweler kidnap a young woman in order to entrap her lover, who has stolen a diamond.
This mystery is encrusted with diversions, digressions and dead ends, as the author-director continues to wrest control away from his characters. Nothing follows a straight line. Jenkin is a circuitous dramatist, and his new play, to borrow one of his phrases, struck me as ''diminishing spirals of decreasing delight. One of the more annoying smokescreens to our understanding is the author's habit of using real names in a fictional context. Just as his earlier play, ''Gogol,'' was not about the Russian author, a leading character in ''Dark Ride'' is named Mrs. Carl Lammle but has nothing to do with the film pioneer Carl Laemmle.

Aside: Were there a movie mogul on this ''Dark Ride,'' he would tell Mr. Jenkin to cut to the chase. View all New York Times newsletters. The chase leads to Mexico for a convention of oculists - much wordplay between the occult and the oculists -and a dizzying wind-up that involves all of the play's diverse characters.

Just tell me how it ends. In the manipulative circumstances, it is difficult to measure performance, but Joanne Akalaitis, as Mrs. Lammle, delivers a sermon with a congenial air of piety; Will Patton, often a very emotional actor, neatly underplays the role of the thief; and Melissa Hurst is attractive as the kidnapped Miss Oculist.
What keeps us intrigued even as we are alienated is the environment conceived by Mr. Jenkin's very creative set designer, John Arnone. Using slides of varying dimension, a shooting gallery of duck decoys, flashing lights and his own eye-catching version of the movie process shot, Mr. Arnone repeatedly alters our perspective and even our equilibrium.
One of his more startling devices is a stagefilling projection of the inside of a plane that appears to vibrate into a third dimension. Arnone's design is a trip in itself and is almost worth the flight.
