Fake It Until You Make It
135 North Grand Ave. Los Angeles
A bold World premiere comedy from Los Angeles-based playwright, Larissa FastHorse, about being whoever you want to be, even when it's not who you are. This critically acclaimed Native writer focuses her keen sense of satire to examine Native American perspectives on contemporary life and will be the first Native writer to have a mainstage production on the Mark Taper Forum stage. A member of the Sicangu Lakota Nation, and author of the upcoming Broadway comedy, The Thanksgiving Play, FastHorse's new work shines a hilarious light on 'shifters' who exist in a world of self-determined identity. This thought-provoking comic play asks what happens when you don't believe you are the race you want to be? Change it! Fake It Until You Make It takes an absurd look at what defines who we are, and the lengths some people will go through to change it.
