The Thanksgiving Play

 



A new comedy that takes a satirical, behind-the-scenes look as a group of well-intentioned white teaching artists scramble to create an ambitious "woke" Thanksgiving pageant that also celebrates Native American Heritage Month.

From the producers: 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.

Originally from South Dakota and an enrolled member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe, Lakota Nation, Larissa FastHorse is an acclaimed playwright, director, and choreographer. She has written and produced numerous contributions to Native American drama, plays involving issues with indigenous people in American society and issues in theater. Her play "Average Family" was commissioned and produced at Children’s Theatre Company of Minneapolis and she has been writing for the theatre ever since. FastHorse was awarded the Joe Dowling Annaghmakerrig Fellowship in 2015 from Jo Haj at the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis.



Directed by Tony nominee Moritz von Stuelpnagel ("Hand to God," "Present Laughter"), the cast features Jennifer Bareilles, Jeffrey Bean, Greg Keller, and Margo Seibert.

What's Playwrights Horizons? PH is a long-running Off-Broadway theatre on West 42nd that develops new plays by both veteran scribes and folks just off the radish truck (admittedly, the radish truck might have made a stop at an MFA playwriting program). The shows are produced in the company's state-of-the-art venues on West 42nd Street, with production standards equal to the best of Off-Broadway....generally, nothing too conceptual or provocative, just interesting plays, well rendered.
