Event Details

THE THANKSGIVING PLAY- BY LARISSA FASTHORSE & DIRECTED BY KARI GOETZ
Oct. 25 – Nov. 17, 2019. Previews Oct. 23-24.

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. Kari Goetz returns to Jobsite after a few years away, previously helming lauded productions like The March of the Kitefliers, boom!, and Crimes of the Heart. “The familiar, whitewashed story of Pilgrims and Native Americans chowing down together gets a delicious roasting from expert farceurs.” – The New York Times. “Very, very funny. [It] skewers liberal pretensions with glee – this clever satire is something for which to be truly thankful.” The Hollywood Reporter”
