The Thanksgiving Play
by Larissa FastHorse
Saturday, August 7 at 7pm
How does one celebrate Thanksgiving and Native American Heritage Month at the same time? In Larissa FastHorse’s biting satire, this is the question facing three “woke” white thespians tasked with devising an elementary school pageant about the first Thanksgiving while avoiding any culturally appropriative missteps. A roast of the politics of entertainment and well-meaning political correctness alike, The Thanksgiving Play puts the American origin story itself in the comedy-crosshairs.
Free and open to the public. On the MSU Campus off Auditorium Road, between the Auditorium Building and the Kresge Art Museum. Both plays are intended for mature audiences. No reservations required. Bring a chair or blanket to sit on, and bug spray. Masks are required for un-vaccinated patrons. Social distancing is not required but encouraged.
