LCC Performing Arts Presents Show by Lakota Playwright


LANSING, Mich. [February 7, 2024]— LCC’s Performing Arts Theatre Program presents The Thanksgiving Play by Larissa FastHorse. Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in FastHorse’s wickedly funny satire, as a troupe of "hip" teaching artists scrambles to create a pageant that somehow manages to celebrate both Turkey Day and Native American Heritage Month.


The Thanksgiving Play is one of the top ten most produced plays in American theatre. FastHorse is the first Native American playwright in the history of American theater on that list. In addition, she is the first female Native American playwright to have her work produced on Broadway. FastHorse, who is from the Sicangu Lakota Nation, is a playwright and choreographer based in Santa Monica, California. She grew up in South Dakota, where she began her career as a ballet dancer and choreographer.
