Every estranged member of the Lafayette clan has descended upon the crumbling Arkansas homestead to settle the accounts of their newly-dead patriarch. As his three adult children sort through a lifetime of hoarded mementos and junk, they collide over clutter, debt, and a contentious family history. But after a disturbing discovery surfaces among their father’s possessions, the reunion takes a turn for the explosive and unleashes crackling surprises, gut-punching honesty, and uproarious confrontations.

The Thanksgiving Play

In October, Thomas returned to Lean Ensemble Theater in Hilton Head Island, appearing in Larissa FastHorse’s The Thanksgiving Play, directed by Maggie Kettering.

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.

This Is Derek

Thomas recently starred in the short “This Is Derek”, part of the Warehouse Theatre’s Long Story Short, written by Paul Grellong (Manuscript, Amazon’s The Boys) and directed by Quinn Xavier Hernandez (assistant director for Warehouse’s Hedwig & the Angry Inch and Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson).
