Local Native American troupe Turtle Theater Collective takes on Larissa FastHorse’s searing play, What Would Crazy Horse Do?, for a limited run this week. The piece is inspired by a real 1926 incident in which the Ku Klux Klan enjoyed a powwow as entertainment during a gathering. FastHorse’s work touches on themes of cultural survival, suicide, marginalization, and “racial purity,” all with a satirical and sometimes brutal bent. This production marks the regional premiere for the play, although other work by the California-based FastHorse has been seen at the Children’s Theater and the Guthrie. Directed by Brian Joyce, this production features a four-person cast: Ernest Briggs, Jei Herald-Zamora, David Rand-McKay, and Maretta Zilic.
