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 Month. A brilliant take on the modern American cultural dilemma.

Whither Goest Thou America?

Readings of new American Plays

 Whither goest thou, America, in thy shiny car in the night?”
-Jack Kerouac, from On the Road

The Reading Series runs from April 16 through May 9, 2020

Undermain presents its third series of readings of new American plays examining the American Landscape. Past festivals have brought the work of writers such as local writers Jonathan Norton and Blake Hackler as well as other American playwrights such as Barbara Hammond, Adrienne Kennedy, and Len Jenkin. In addition to staged readings, Undermain audiences get access to writers featured in the festival in post-show discussions with playwrights, directors and actors. Each week of the series will focus on a different playwright and play with staged readings by an ensemble cast. Audiences will have the opportunity to return each week of the series to experience a new work examining the American experience and asking the question, “Where are we going?”

Play titles will be announced during the season.
