Theatre: ‘The Thanksgiving Play’

Sam will be in the play ‘The Thanksgiving Play‘ at the Geffen Playhouse, which is Sam’s first play there. The play runs from Oct. 22nd – Dec. 1st 2019.

How does one celebrate Thanksgiving and Native American Heritage Month at the same time? In Larissa FastHorse’s biting satire, this is the question facing three “woke” white thespians tasked with devising an elementary school pageant about the first Thanksgiving while avoiding any culturally appropriative missteps. A roast of the politics of entertainment and well-meaning political correctness alike, The Thanksgiving Play puts the American origin story itself in the comedy-crosshairs. Source: Geffen Playhouse
