In this fast-paced satire by recent MacArthur Genius Grant recipient Larissa FastHorse (Sicangu Lakota Nation), good intentions collide with absurd assumptions. A troupe of white liberal teaching artists scramble to devise a grade school theatre performance that somehow manages to celebrate Turkey Day while also honoring Native American Heritage Month. WAM Theatre is honored to be connected with the Mohican Tribe (traditional stewards of the land on which we reside) who will be providing an introduction and cultural context to this production.

"Very, very funny...something for which to be truly thankful." - The Hollywood Reporter

"The familiar, whitewashed story of Pilgrims and Native Americans chowing down together gets a delicious roasting from expert farceurs." - 
The New York Times

WAM Theatre is honored to be connected with The Mohican Tribe (traditional stewards of the land on which we reside) who will be providing an introduction and cultural context to this production.

The Thanksgiving Play will be presented as a dynamic, creatively designed, digital production. The performance will be available for you to enjoy online from November 19 at 7:30 pm Eastern until November 22 at 7:29 pm Eastern Time.

REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS SUNDAY, November 13th
