Join us for an up close and personal conversation with TCG playwright Larissa FastHorse discussing the joint publication of The Thanksgiving Play & What Would Crazy Horse Do? with frequent collaborator and director Michael John Garcés.
About The Thanksgiving Play...
A group of well-intentioned white teaching artists scramble to create an ambitious "woke" Thanksgiving pageant. Despite their eager efforts to put on the most culturally sensitive show possible, it quickly becomes clear that even those with good intentions can be undone by their own blind spots.
"Satire doesn't get much richer... A takedown of white American mythology... The familiar, whitewashed story of Pilgrims and Native Americans chowing down together gets a delicious roasting." —Jesse Green, New York Times
About What Would Crazy Horse Do?...
Twins Calvin and Journey, the last two members of the Marahotah tribe, make a suicide pact to end the Marahotah when the grandfather who raised them dies. Then two white strangers knock on their door and the insular world of the twins is ripped wide open.
The publication of The Thanksgiving Play / What Would Crazy Horse Do? by Larissa FastHorse, through TCG’s Book Program, is made possible by Stephanie Ansin & Spencer Stewart and in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. This program is also supported by Fisher Dachs Associates along with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
