About

Directed by LISA PORTES

Watch as a group of liberal artists walk the fine line of political correctness in this fresh, satirical comedy. Armed with progressive lingo and questionably good intentions, they attempt to devise a culturally sensitive Thanksgiving play for local elementary schools. Slowly but surely, the well-meaning plans dissolve into an outrageous sendup of PC behavior. The Thanksgiving Play treads the minefields of appropriation to inject some laughter into activism, apathy and all the assumptions in between.


ADVISORY: The Thanksgiving Play is suitable for adults and teenage audiences. This biting satire contains mature themes and mild adult language about America’s sometimes troubling history. It also contains some questionable Thanksgiving reenactments. Be advised: no turkeys will be harmed in the making of this play.
