COMING SOON: 

THE THANKSGIVING PLAY
by Larissa FastHorse

California Premiere
Directed by Michael Stevenson
June 20 – July 22, 2018

Four mismatched artists attempt to devise an ethnically sensitive play for the local schools to celebrate both Thanksgiving and Native American Heritage Month – with no Native American actors. In this wickedly funny satire, political correctness, ego and just plain ignorance collide as these well-meaning self-proclaimed artists try to perform a Thanksgiving miracle (without killing any turkeys).

“A razor-sharp spoof of progressive pretense that shows how people can convince themselves that they are doing good by doing nothing at all…” 
The Oregonian

“…a hilarious illustration of the ineffectiveness of good intentions.”
Oregon ArtsWatch

“To do satire well is a balancing act. Many things can go terribly wrong. Rest assured, FastHorse hits the bull’s eye every time she takes aim.” 
Judy Nedry Reviews

 PERFORMANCE: 80 minutes, no intermission
