About the event

As a living art form, theatre has always been a reflection of society, adapting to provide commentary on current events. The power of theatre to not only entertain but also to provoke thought and provide perspective.  We are excited to introduce our Social Justice Table Read Series. In this series, we will be presenting various plays that look at social justice issues from different viewpoints. In the first session on 10/1 will read through the work. The second session (11/5) will continue with our reading and then discuss (ideally over a socially curated adjacent event). Registrants will be furnished a copy of the work.

 

SYNOPSIS:

Four (very) well-intentioned theatre people walk into an elementary school. The work at hand: a Thanksgiving pageant that won’t ruffle any feathers. What could possibly go wrong? In MacArthur Genius Larissa FastHorse’s skewering and satirical comedy, well, just about everything. Rambunctious, thorny and not altogether politically correct, The Thanksgiving Play serves up the hypocrisies of woke America on a big, family-style, platter.
