The Playhouse in the Park is conveniently located in Eden Park on the edge of Mt. Adams, just minutes from downtown Cincinnati. We are easily accessible from both I-71 and I-75, as well as Columbia Parkway. If you’re utilizing a GPS device, our street address is 962 Mt. Adams Circle, Cincinnati, Ohio, 45202.
Convenient parking is available in the Playhouse garage and can be reserved in advance by calling the Box Office at 513-421-3888.

Garage parking is $8.50 when reserved in advance ($10 in December) and $10 on the day of the show (if available).
About The Thanksgiving Play
Armed with good intentions and progressive lingo, three liberal theatre artists attempt to devise a culturally sensitive Thanksgiving play for local elementary schools. They realize rather quickly that honoring Indigenous people while simultaneously celebrating the peaceful Thanksgiving feast of American lore is much more difficult than they anticipated. Their well-meaning plans dissolve into an outrageous sendup of politically correct behavior as THE THANKSGIVING PLAY treads the minefields of appropriation to inject laughter into activism, apathy and all the assumptions in between.
