About this show

Thanksgiving: among the 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. The Thanksgiving Play was commissioned by Artists Repertory Theatre in Portland, Oregon, where it received its West Coast premiere.
