Trustus Theatre: The Thanksgiving Play

Ah, Thanksgiving, that most American of holidays: when families gather to celebrate the warmth of home, the bounty of the harvest — and a legacy of genocide and violent colonial expansion. Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions when 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. Trustus Theatre in Columbia presents Larissa FastHorse’s wickedly funny satire, The Thanksgiving Play, November 11th through 22nd, available through ticketed on-demand online viewing.
