The Thanksgiving Play

Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in Larissa FastHorse’s wickedly funny satire, as a troupe of terminally woke teaching artists scrambles to create a pageant that somehow manages to celebrate both Turkey Day and Native American Heritage Month. "The Thanksgiving Play" premiered off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons in New York City on October 12, 2018.


Larissa FastHorse is a professor of practice in the Department of English and the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Arizona State University.

Praise for this book

Very, very funny... this clever satire is something for which to be truly thankful.

Hollywood Reporter

The familiar, whitewashed story of Pilgrims and Native Americans chowing down together gets a delicious roasting from expert farceurs.
