threatened – as this tragedy and years of civil unrest leave Olivia believing
that “this world ain’t no place to raise a colored child.”

families gather to celebrate the warmth of home, the bounty of the harvest —
and a legacy of genocide and violent colonial expansion. Good intentions
collide with absurd assumptions in Larissa FastHorse’s wickedly funny satire,
as a troupe of terminally “woke” teaching artists scrambles to create a pageant
that somehow manages to celebrate both Turkey Day and Native American Heritage

gutted theater. Two plays. One epic evening. An achingly human exploration of
the end of the American experiment.
Each night, the two plays
LEWISTON/CLARKSTON will be performed together, in an intimate space for a small
audience of only 51 guests who will gather to watch, to share a catered meal
between the two productions, and to consider as a community our place in the
ongoing American experiment. The evening will run about 3.5 hours in total.
Together the plays focus
on two modern-day descendants of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. Set at a
failing fireworks stand in Lewiston, Idaho, and across the river at a big box
store in Clarkston, Washington, the plays LEWISTON and CLARKSTON share the
essential question: what is the true legacy of the great American push West?
