Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in this wickedly
funny satire. Ah, Thanksgiving, that most American of holidays:
when families gather to celebrate the warmth of home, the bounty
of the harvest — and a legacy of genocide and violent colonial
expansion. A troupe of terminally “woke” teaching artists
scrambles to create a pageant that somehow celebrates both Turkey Day and Native American Heritage Month.

This unique and compassionate new play asks how do we address life’s biggest questions when words fail us. In the overwhelming quiet of the woods, six runaways from city life embark on a silent retreat. As these strangers confront internal demons both profound and absurd, their vows of silence collide with the achingly human need to connect.
