THE THANKSGIVING PLAY
by Larissa FastHorse (Rosebud Sioux Tribe, Sicangu Lakota)
directed by Diana Wyenn
presented by Grand Performances
featuring Jessica Hanna (Logan), Alec Tomkiw (Jaxton), Eric Hunicutt (Caden), and Wallis Quaintance (Alicia)
We were honored to produce the first public staged reading of award-winning playwright, director and choreographer Larissa FastHorse's The Thanksgiving Play in Los Angeles at Grand Performances's outdoor amphitheater. This satirical comedy follows four people attempting to devise a politically correct play celebrating both Thanksgiving and Native American Month. The actors navigate a thicket of privilege, history and school district rules to share a better understanding of marginalized communities.
