In this fast-paced satire by MacArthur Genius Grant recipient Larissa FastHorse (Sicangu Lakota Nation), good intentions collide with absurd assumptions, as a troupe of white Liberal teaching artists scramble to devise a grade school theatre performance that somehow manages to celebrate Turkey Day, while also honoring Native American Heritage Month.
WAM Theatre is honored to be connected with The Mohican Tribe (traditional stewards of the land on which we reside) who will be providing an introduction and cultural context to the play.
As part of WAM’s ongoing anti-racism and reparations work and using our art as our activism, we will be making a donation to the Mohican tribe. We encourage you to join us by donating to the Mohican Tribe HERE
