A mismatched but well-meaning foursome sets out to devise a politically correct school play that can somehow sensitively celebrate both Thanksgiving and Native American Month. How can this wildly diverse quartet—separated by cultural chasms and vastly different perspectives on history—navigate a complicated, hilarious thicket of privilege, representation, and of course school district regulations? The schools are waiting, and the pageant must go on!

Or call the Box Office at 410.332.0033.

What are Play Labs?
Developing a new play doesn’t happen overnight. The process of workshops, readings, and rewrites play a vital role in helping playwrights see and hear their work—as plot holes get fixed, characters get solidified, dialogue comes to life, and the play gets on its feet. First audiences are at the heart of that effort. Center Stage Play Labs are dedicated to this cause.

This play was developed though the Joe Dowling Annaghmakerrig Fellowship from the Guthrie and a Table/Room/Stage Finishing Commission from Artists Repertory Theatre.

Special thanks to our partners at the Lord Baltimore Hotel.
