The Thanksgiving Play

by Larissa FastHorse
Directed by Laura Gordon
November 19 – December 19, 2021 | Studio Theatre

Milwaukee Chamber Theatre

This project is a particular joy for me. Rarely do I have the chance to do great satire, and even more rarely, a comedy within a satire. It’s been a treat and a challenge. Ultimately, the play makes you laugh, makes you think, and hopefully, it will inspire conversation about the true history of Thanksgiving.

To set the stage, here are a couple of my favorite interviews with the playwright:

Romance in D

Opening Tuesday, August 23 at Peninsula Players:

It’s been a while, but I’m grateful to return to the stage.

Synopsis: Charles, a musicologist, has cloistered himself off from romantic entanglements. He keeps himself occupied with work, casual friendships, food visits from his mother, Helen, and Leonard Bernstein’s music.  Isabel, a brokenhearted poet, moves into the apartment next door and has only her visiting father, George, for company.  After Charles unexpectedly rescues Isabel from a half-hearted suicide attempt, his loving yet sometimes overbearing mother tries to push the two of them together.
