The Thanksgiving Play

Ah, Thanksgiving, that most American of holidays: when families gather to celebrate the warmth of home, the bounty of the harvest — and a legacy of genocide and violent colonial expansion. Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in Larissa FastHorse’s wickedly funny satire, as a troupe of terminally “woke” teaching artists scrambles to create a pageant that somehow manages to celebrate both Turkey Day and Native American Heritage Month.

“Very, very funny. Larissa FastHorse’s The Thanksgiving Play skewers liberal pretensions with glee — this clever satire is something for which to be truly thankful.” — Hollywood Reporter

“The familiar, whitewashed story of Pilgrims and Native Americans chowing down together gets a delicious roasting from expert farceurs.” — The New York Times

"The perfect holiday fare for these strange times... a gutsy and challenging production." - Eugene Weekly
