The Thanksgiving Play
By Larissa FastHorse
Directed by Brandon Rashad Butts
November 4 - 27, 2022
Pay-What-You-Can Preview Performance on November 3rd.
Rehearsals start the week of September 26th.
In this 2015 wickedly funny satire by Larissa FastHorse, good intentions collide with absurd assumptions as a troupe of “woke” teaching artists scrambles to create a pageant that somehow manages to celebrate both Turkey Day and Native American Heritage Month. FastHorse has written and produced plays involving challenges that indigenous people have in American society.
Logan - Female, Caucasian looking, the high school drama teacher that's always pushing the envelope in potentially inappropriate ways.
Jaxton - Male, Caucasian looking, yoga practitioner/actor. A confident guy that everyone loves, but his logical politically correct thinking takes weird turns.
Alicia - Female, Caucasian looking but would have been cast as "ethnic" in 1950s movies.
Caden - Male, Caucasian looking, the academic. Awkward elementary school history teacher with dramatic aspiration but no experience.
In addition to attending rehearsals and performances, all artists and staff working with Fells Point Corner Theatre will be expected to agree to, and conduct themselves in accordance with our Code of Conduct Policies for the safety of all. These policies will be made available to actors along with their contract should any roles be offered.
