SECOND STAGE THEATER PRESENTS

THE THANKSGIVING PLAY

Written by Larissa FastHorse

Directed by Rachel Chavkin

Spring 2023

Broadway Premiere at the Hayes Theater (240 W 44th Street)

Good intentions. Bad decisions. 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.
