THE THANKSGIVING PLAY
NOVEMBER 12, 13, 14, 2021
PERFORMED LIVE AT THE MANDARIN COMMUNITY CLUB!
Additional Production Support from Holly & Redgie Gutshall
Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in this wickedly funny satire.
How does one celebrate Thanksgiving and Native American Heritage Month at the same time? In Larissa FastHorse’s biting satire, this is the question facing three “woke” white thespians tasked with devising an elementary school pageant about the first Thanksgiving while avoiding any culturally appropriative missteps. A roast of the politics of entertainment and well-meaning political correctness alike, The Thanksgiving Play puts the American origin story itself in the comedy-crosshairs.
