Large Mixed Cast

Two essential plays by award-winning Native American playwright Larissa FastHorse

In The Thanksgiving Play, good intentions collide with absurd assumptions when a group of white teaching artists scramble to create an ambitious, culturally sensitive Thanksgiving pageant

In What Would Crazy Horse Do?, twins Calvin and Journey, the last two members of the Marahotah tribe, make a suicide pact to end the Marahotah when their grandfather dies

Then two white strangers knock on their door and the insular world of the twins is ripped wide open


The Thanksgiving Play

"Satire doesn't get much richer... A takedown of white American mythology... The familiar, whitewashed story of Pilgrims and Native Americans chowing down together gets a delicious roasting" ~Jesse Green, New York Times

"Wryly funny... Deftly makes points that need making about representation and, to borrow a line from Hamilton, the crucial matter of 'who tells your story'" ~ Don Aucoin, Boston Globe

What Would Crazy Horse Do?

"A nuanced portrait of reservation life... A scalding cauldron of race and resentment, poverty, and mental illness" ~ Robert W. Butler, Kansas City Star

"A timely meditation on the dangers of nationalism tinged with a sad irony as seen through the filter of a Native American lens" ~ Alan Portner, Broadway World
