Becket Arts Center
The Thanksgiving Play is a one-act satirical comedy that revolves around four white individuals attempting to create a politically correct First Thanksgiving play for Native American Heritage Month in schools.
In their endeavor, the director, Logan, hires a Native American actor to provide cultural guidance. However, it is later revealed that the actor is actually white and only portrays Native American characters when not playing other ethnicities. Without an authentic Native voice, the four white individuals must navigate the challenges of privilege, historical accuracy, and adherence to school district rules. Their journey through this intricate terrain forms the crux of the play’s comedic narrative.
