Let’s see … how to create a holiday pageant that simultaneously celebrates Thanksgiving while honoring Native American Heritage Month in the most aware and least offensive way possible? Such is the riddle of existence for this troupe of terminally “woke” teaching artists struggling through a bog of absurd assumptions while toting their bounty of good intentions. Larissa FastHorse’s blisteringly-funny side-eye comedy gives new meaning to the phrase Turkey Day. “Very, very funny … skewers liberal pretensions with glee—this clever satire is something for which to be truly thankful” ( The Hollywood Reporter ).
