Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in this wickedly funny satire, as a troupe of terminally woke teaching artists scramble to create a pageant that somehow manages to celebrate both Turkey Day and Native American Heritage Month. This hit play was written by Larissa FastHorse, making her the first Native American woman playwright produced on Broadway.
