The Thanksgiving Play

Canadian Premiere 
A Pop-Up Theatre Canada Production   

By Larissa FastHorse 
Directed by Vinetta Strombergs

Starring Rachel Cairns, Colin Doyle, Craig Lauzon and Jada Rifkin 

Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in Larissa FastHorse’s hilarious comedy.

It’s the story of four white theatre people who are brought together to create a culturally sensitive elementary school show about the origins of Thanksgiving. Their politically correct attempts to update the myth of the first Thanksgiving with today’s social justice issues are served up as a comedic feast. The play asks: How do you do the right thing in an ever-changing world?

A hit on Broadway and one of the most produced plays across North America, The Thanksgiving Play is smart, wildly entertaining and deliciously wicked.
