Larissa FastHorse’s

The Thanksgiving Play

WHEN & WHERE:             

Saturday September 11, 11 AM-4 PM

(by appointment)
The Vortex Theatre
2307 Manor Road


PLOT SUMMARY:           


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.


2 Women Ages 20-40

2 Men Ages 20-40


LOGAN— Female, Caucasian looking, the high school drama teacher that’s always pushing the envelope in potentially inappropriate ways. Earnest about theatre and proving herself.

JAXTON—Male, Caucasian looking, yoga practitioner/actor. Politically correct to a fault, a big one. He’s that confident guy everyone loves, but his logical PC thinking takes weird turns.

ALICIA—Female, brunette, Caucasian looking but has looks that would have been cast as ethnic in 1950s movies. without guile. Sexy and hot, but not bright.

CADEN—Male, Caucasian looking, the academic. Awkward elementary school history teacher with dramatic aspirations but no experience.


Playwright’s note on casting: All ages are open and people of color that can pass as white should be considered for all characters.
