About the show
" ...[an] extremely amusing and thoughtful satire" - Talkin' Broadway
"The play hilariously dissects political correctness" - Hollywood Reporter
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
