The Thanksgiving Play, Larissa FastHorse’s satire about thespians, political correctness, and school holiday pageants, opens at the Geffen Playhouse November 5. The production is scheduled to run through December 6 in Los Angeles.
Directed by Michael John Garcés, the play follows several “woke” performers at an elementary school as they prepare to put on a Thanksgiving show that tries to both honor Native American Heritage Month and the Pilgrims’ fabled feast.
