Join us for the first show of Vegas Theatre Company's 2019/2020 season, The Thanksgiving Play by Larissa FastHorse.
Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in Larissa FastHorse’s wickedly funny satire, as a troupe of terminally “woke” teaching artists scrambles to create a pageant that somehow manages to celebrate both Turkey Day and Native American Heritage Month.
Performed by a stellar cast - Christopher Brown, Kelly Hawes, Scott McAdam and Amy Reusch - and directed by VTC Artistic Director Daz Weller, this 90 minute comedy with barbs has been a hit with audiences around the country and arrives in Vegas for the first time.

“The familiar, whitewashed story of Pilgrims and Native Americans chowing down together gets a delicious roasting” - The New York Times
“A satirical and visual punch.” - New York Stage Review
“Very, very funny. Larissa FastHorse’s The Thanksgiving Play skewers liberal pretensions with glee – this clever satire is something for which to be truly thankful.” - Hollywood Reporter
