UET ZOOMBOX - Thanksgiving Play

Friday, March 5, 2021

7:30 p.m.


Native American playwright Larissa FastHorse has written a searing comedy about four white people charged with creating a politically correct and respectful elementary school pageant about the first Thanksgiving. Through biting humor, THANKSGIVING PLAY takes on the mythology of people simply finding peace over a bountiful meal in what FastHorse herself calls “performative wokeness.” American Theatre Magazine named this satirical powerhouse of a script as one of the ten most produced plays of the 2019–20 season. Don’t miss this wickedly funny play by an important voice in the American Theatre.

A Zoom Webinar production, directed by Emma Tolleson, a senior performance major from Temple, Texas.
