The Thanksgiving Play

The Thanksgiving Play

Presented by Trustus Theatre at Trustus Theatre

ABOUT THE PLAY: 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.

ABOUT VIRTUAL ON-DEMAND VIEWING: While our theatre remains closed for live performances, you can still enjoy a contemporary and thoughtful comedy tailor-made to be enjoyed at home for the holidays! We will be producing this play with full production design on our Main Stage, and professionally filming and editing it for virtual on-demand viewing. When you make a reservation online, we’ll send you a unique code that will grant you access to view the play at your convenience Nov. 11 – 21, 2020. Microwave some popcorn at home, uncork a bottle of wine, and cozy up for a new Trustus play right in your living room!

Play by Larissa Fasthorse, Directed by Abigail McNeely, Starring: Brittany Hammock, Kayla Machado, Patrick Dodds, & Clint Poston
