The Thanksgiving Play Staff Pick

When: Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through Feb. 9 2020
Price: $46-$71
If no good deed really does go unpunished, then Logan's new play is doomed from the start. Logan is a working director who wishes to stage a completely unproblematic new production inspired by Thanksgiving. Her cast is ready and eager to mindfully do the work, but how do they stay woke and avoid all of the standard landmines (Native Americans vs. Pilgrims, turkeys vs. industrialized factory farming) with a subject as fraught as first contact between colonizers and colonized? Larissa FastHorse's The Thanksgiving Play skewers the characters' pretensions and the nature of some sort of "traditional Thanksgiving." The Repertory Theatre St. Louis Studio Series presents the satire Tuesday through Sunday (January 17 to February 9) at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; Tickets are $46 to $71.
