THANKSGIVING a not all-the-way true, but sometimes painfully so, dysfunctional family comedy 

 Chloe Patterson has invited her perfect fiancé to what she will make sure is the perfect Thanksgiving, despite her very imperfect family. She's got a solid plan in place to combat any and all hints of dysfunction, providing for every possible contingency… except the unexpected dinner guest: a very unfiltered, Las Vegas stripper. 

 Scabs are picked, secrets are revealed and fights erupt as this group struggles to make it through another holiday unscathed.

Reviews

Holiday gatherings frequently serve as framework for plays about dysfunctional families, and Thanksgiving, written by Tiffany Cascio and directed by Kitty Lindsay, is one of them. Although not nearly as clever as it tries to be, it features several choice roles for women, a few good laugh lines and, in the case of this Hollywood Fringe premiere production, one outstanding performance.

Epithets, insults and food will be flung before the leftovers and decorations are put away and much hilarity ensues in Cascio's script...Director Kitty Lindsay has staged the play with enough variations that the cast just doesn't sit hiding behind the food for ninety minutes.
