Event Details

See a cutting comedy about the first Thanksgiving, and a school trying to commemorate it with a “politically correct” pageant. In The Thanksgiving Play, being performed October 12th-November 5th at the Tacoma Armory, a well-meaning theater troupe attempt to put on a culturally sensitive Thanksgiving school pageant and things get messy. Through satire and humor, the play addresses the misrepresentation of Native Americans, the lack of indigenous casting, and the challenges of accurately representing indigenous people in American society. The Thanksgiving Play made its Broadway debut in 2023, making Larissa FastHorse the first female Native American playwright to have a play produced on Broadway.
