Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in this 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.

 

This hit play was written by Larissa FastHorse, making her the first Native American woman playwright produced on Broadway.

Press

“A blistering satire of ’woke’ white folks” -American Theatre Magazine

 

"Broadway’s funniest and most daring new comedy” -The Guardian

 

“Very, very funny. Larissa FastHorse’s The Thanksgiving Play skewers liberal pretensions with glee – this clever satire is something for which to be truly thankful." – Hollywood Reporter

 

“Rambunctiously funny” -Wall Street Journal
