Spring 2023 will see the Broadway premiere of Larissa FastHorse’s The Thanksgiving Play, directed by Rachel Chavkin at the Hayes Theater. With this production, Ms. FastHorse will be the first female Native American playwright produced on Broadway.
Good intentions. Bad decisions. Great fun. In Larissa FastHorse’s satirical comedy The Thanksgiving Play, a troupe of really well-meaning theater artists dream of creating something revolutionary: a culturally sensitive, totally inoffensive Thanksgiving school pageant that finally gives a voice to Native Americans. Finding said Native Americans... isn’t so simple. And that’s when things start to get absurd. Sending up a whole feast of social issues, this bitingly funny play roasts everything right, wrong, and woke in America.
