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 hilarious crowd-pleaser…” Davis Enterprise

“A comical tour-de-force that is wonderfully delivered in a first-rate production…” Sacramento Gazette

“‘The Thanksgiving Play’ is thoroughly entertaining, both in subject matter and in the seamlessly synchronized cast…” SN&R 

“Amidst the humor and dramatic exercises, playwright FastHorse’s veneer of serious concern about white privilege, class status and sexual politics resonates.” Sacramento Bee

 PERFORMANCE: 90 minutes, no intermission
