The Thanksgiving Play
2017-2018 Artists Rep
The Thanksgiving Play

by Larissa FastHorse, directed by Luan Schooler

April 1, 2018 – April 29, 2018

Morrison Stage

Run time: 80 min. No intermission.

A group of mismatched teachers and actors have been charged by the school district to devise an ethnically sensitive play to somehow celebrate both Thanksgiving and Native American Heritage Month. In order to be as respectful and accurate as possible, the three white actors defer to the only Native American in the room for guidance and find their expectations of her insights are wildly misguided. In this wickedly funny satire, this foursome must find their way through a hilarious thicket of assumptions, historical perspectives and school district policies as the absurd pageant must go on!




I and You
2017-2018 Artists Rep
I and You

by Lauren Gunderson, directed by JoAnn Johnson

May 20, 2018 – June 17, 2018

Morrison Stage

Two teens – a sick and snarky girl who hates poetry, and a sweet and sporty boy who just wants to get his class work project done – are thrust together to work on a school project about Walt Whitman’s poems. Like boxers in a ring, the mismatched pair spar their way through Whitman's epic Song of Myself into an uneasy friendship. With growing urgency and searing poignancy, I and You is a funny, tender and surprising journey about the strange beauty of human connectedness.
