Bagley Wright Theater

The first play by acclaimed intertribal sketch comedy troupe The 1491sbest known for the hit television series “Reservation Dogstakes audiences on a searing and absurdly funny series of vignettes through American history centered on one family’s account of their experiences from the massacre at Wounded Knee in 1890 to the protests there in 1973.

unlike any other show, mixing shame with amusement into a piece that uses comedy as resistance


Prepare to be challenged, confronted, enlightened, shamed and, above all, amused.
